7 bogus grammar 'errors' you don't need to worry about
The Week
By Ben Yagoda: When it comes to the English language, I'm not an anything-goes kind of guy. If I were, I wouldn't have written a book called "How to Not Write Bad: The Most Common Writing Errors and the Best Ways to Avoid Them." It's just that I hate to see people waste their time hunting down so-called mistakes that really aren't mistakes at all. So consider this a public-service announcement in the wake of Monday's National Grammar Day.

The cunning plot to lure book buyers away from Amazon
The Independent
War is said to be the mother of invention — and in the increasingly bitter battleground of publishing, bookshops have a new weapon. Anyone who buys the new Joanne Harris paperback "Peaches for Monsieur le Curé" from Waterstones will find it contains an extra chapter not included in copies sold elsewhere, after the book chain signed an exclusive deal with the author.

Will authors get compensated for used e-book sales?
PBS
On Jan. 29, Amazon Technologies Inc. received a patent pertaining to the "secondary market for digital objects." According to the patent abstract, the technology will enable Amazon customers to transfer — and presumably sell — e-books, MP3s, and other digital files to other customers. And Apple also has filed for patents on the transfer of owned digital items.

How to sell books like Charles Dickens
Book Riot
Sean Platt is an experienced copywriter, and he knows how to write fast. Since 2011, he has turned his quick-fingered talents to writing fiction, and with his writing partner David Wright (under the name "Collective Inkwell"), he has been writing serials. Their first series, "Yesterday's Gone," is 700 pages long — and it was written in seven weeks. It's an impressive feat of stamina.

The 7 deadly sins of self-editing
Writer's Digest

The year of the author?
Digital Book World
Tuesday was a big news day in e-books and digital book publishing, and we and our colleagues at the other trade publications were busy reporting on several developments.

The end of ISBN codes?
The Economist
Look inside any book published since 1970 and you will find a number. But perhaps not for much longer. The International Standard Book Number, invented in Britain in 1965, took off rapidly as an international system for classifying books, with 150 agencies (one per country, with two for bilingual Canada) now issuing the codes.

Limited licence
The Bookseller
A famous author, presenting his forthcoming book to his excited new publishers at a sales conference, once said: "You look after the sales, I will look after posterity." While the rediscovery of the works of Herman Melville, Richard Yates and J G Farrell many years after their deaths may have boosted their publishers' sales, and the respective authors' posthumous reputations, it did not help the authors' own prosperity in their lifetime.
