I appeared today on a popular weekly podcast, the Kindle Chronicles with Len Edgerly to discuss Jerry (from Accounting).
In this episode, we have a wide-ranging discussion of the current publishing landscape, starting with the portrayal of workspaces in fiction, and how fiction tends to lag behind nonfiction in accurately capturing the impact of trends like stack ranking, billable hours expectations, and the decline of American leisure.
Next, the discussion looks at how the publishing landscape is shifting for emerging writers, and how several unique reader sets have developed for literary magazines/small presses, the Amazon ebook community, and traditional Big Five publishers.
As an emerging author who has published with Amazon's literary imprint and traditional lit-mags, I offer my thoughts on how to navigate the diverging platforms.
