INDUSTRY NEWS

The Wall Street Journal
Barnes & Noble Inc. has sharply reduced the number of Simon & Schuster titles it carries in its stores as well as the promotion it gives those books as a result of a financial dispute between the two companies, say people familiar with the matter. The dispute reflects tensions created by the shift to digital reading and the impact of online discounting, which are shaking up publishing.

How to develop any idea into a great story
Writer's Digest
Awhile ago, I attended an inventors' club meeting. Some of the members had already launched successful products and were working on more, while others were merely beginners with great ideas. The beginners were commiserating about how hard it is to deal with financing, raw materials, manufacturing, promotion and all the rest, when one of the experienced inventors suddenly stood up.

Books aren't dead yet
Salon
Without a doubt, book publishing is an industry in a state of flux, but even the nature of the flux is up for grabs. Take a recent example of the traditional tech-journalism take on the situation, an article by Evan Hughes for Wired magazine, titled "Book Publishers Scramble to Rewrite Their Future." The facts in the story are indisputable, but the interpretation? Not so much.

Book publishers scramble to rewrite their future
Wired
While working in a bookstore in Boone, N.C., back in 2011, a 36-year-old college dropout named Hugh Howey started writing a series of sci-fi novellas called "Wool." His stories were set in a postapocalyptic world where all human survivors live in an underground silo, a microsociety where resources are so scarce that one person has to die before another can be born.

Why e-books are a different genre from print
The Guardian
Most readers, will by now have seen the "Medieval Helpdesk" sketch from Norweigan TV, where an exasperated monk requires assistance to start working with a new-fangled and daunting "book". It's fun — if loopily anachronistic, the codex having been around since the 1st century AD.

E-books mean a plot twist for public libraries and publishers
The Economist
Plastered on the wall of San Francisco's main public library are 50,000 index cards, formerly entries in the library's catalog. The tomes they refer to may be becoming decorative, too. Not only can library patrons now search the collection online, they may also check out electronic books without visiting the library. For librarians, "e-lending" is a natural offer in the digital age. Publishers and booksellers fear it could unbind their business.

Are the French preparing an e-book revolution?
PBS
Are the French really an exception? Are they going to be the ones to hang onto paper longer than anyone else and scorn e-books with an Inspector Clouseau-like "non?" Or are they going to be really French about the whole thing and pull an e-revolution on the rest of the unsuspecting world? A recent study showed that one out of five French people has already read an e-book, but also that more than half of them declared they would never touch one.
