Rob is gone this week, off being sick, and he’s replaced by J. Scott Savage, who recently sold a MG series, The Grimville Case Files, to Harper Childrens.
First, Marion gives us a rundown on the latest news in the publishing industry, highlighting the latest developments in lawsuits, ebooks, self-publishing and more.
Then, we talk about the state of the industry–what’s healthy and what’s not; where are we seeing growth; what should authors do to prepare for the future.
Finally, we play Bad Romance, and Sarah, Marion, and Scott all miss a fantastic joke opportunity that Rob was screaming at them while he edited later. See if you can guess it.
Also, you may notice that the sound is funny sometimes. We were recording off Google+ VOIP. Either that, or Scott is a robot.
