But Is It A Book?
This article in Bloomberg Businessweek explores new trends in online publishing and higlights two new sites, Byliner and The Atavist, that specialize in content that is longer than the typical magazine article but shorter than what we think of as a book. What Is A Book? The article also points out trends in self-publishing by Amanda Hocking, author of nine paranormal romance young-adult novels, and Barry Eisler, author of two bestselling thriller series. Hocking is now moving from self-publishing to traditional publishing because she is feeling overwhelmed, but Eisler is moving from traditional publishing to self-publishing so he can get more control and more money.
