STATE OF PUBLISHING HAIKU

so last night I had a tweet rant...today a quickly written summation haiku:

paper books not dead
self-pubbed e-books part of whole
readers reject dreck

And with that I bring you the lovely news that PIRATE BOY by Eve Bunting and illustrated by Herman Agency client Julie Fortenberry is featured in this Sunday's NYT book review!

  1. I like your haiku -- and I certainly hope that's true. I like having ebooks in the mix, but I'm not ready to part with the special enjoyment of print books.

  2. Very true! I believe that just as youtube didn't eradicate the television, e-books will not force print books out of publication.

  5. RAD-Dot Painter,
    I feel the same way. The quality of the majority of the self-pubbed e-books is not up to par with traditional publishing but like in everything, there will be some great ones.

  6. I long for new books
    The road to buy is open
    Web winged or bookstore
