Self-publishing boom boosts freelance editing services
PBS
For awhile, it probably seemed to some friends and family that Rebecca Faith Heyman had pursued an expensive degree at NYU without any intention of actually using it. She did her undergraduate and graduate degrees there, both in English, and while many of her classmates secured internships at the big publishers and magazines, Heyman spent her summers working service jobs in hotels and restaurants.

May 2015 Author Earnings Report
Author Earnings
Welcome to the May 2015 Author Earnings Report. This is our sixth quarterly look at Amazon's e-book sales, with data taken on over 200,000 bestselling e-books. With each report over the past year and a half, we have come to see great consistency in our results, but there is always something new that surprises us. Often, it's something we weren't expecting, like the massive shadow industry of ISBN-less e-books being sold, or the effect Kindle Unlimited has on title visibility.

How fast does your e-book grow
The Bookseller
The prevailing mythology around tech is that the giant internet companies will dominate globally, just as they do nationally. They are borderless and all powerful. Facebook has 1.44 billion monthly active users, YouTube 1 billion unique users. So what happened with e-books? Five years ago, pundits were talking about how Amazon, Apple, Google and Kobo would roll out globally to meet the worldwide demand for e-books: an eco-system built largely in America for a global audience.

An author speaks directly to publishers
Thought Catalog
"I know you're all very nice people that are a pleasure to work with, and I know you do things in this roundabout way because you love talking and I even love talking to you ... But when you offer workflows that are slower, less functional and more complicated than what people use in their everyday lives, you are no longer helping authors."

Subscription services for e-books: Like Netflix, like Spotify, or not at all?
Forbes
Monthly "all you can eat" subscription services are now mainstream for music, movies and TV. Will they be as popular for e-books as well? A move made recently by New York-based startup Oyster casts some doubt on this. Oyster recently launched a traditional e-book retail feature, which complements the $10/month subscription e-book service that the company first launched over a year and a half ago.

The future of e-book prices: A history lesson from the app industry
The Writers' Workshop
Change is inevitable. If you had told me, 15 years ago, that I'd soon be able to buy and read practically any book on a handheld device that was thinner and lighter than a paperback, I actually would have believed you. And why not? Technology marches forward at a terrific pace. However, if you'd told me that people would be paying little or nothing for these books, I'd have shaken my head; I certainly wouldn't have thought that authors and publishers could just give away their revenue.

The Associated Press via U.S. News & World Report
President Barack Obama announced that major book publishers will provide more than $250 million in free e-books to low-income students and that he is seeking commitments from local governments and schools nationwide to provide library cards to all students. Obama announced the initiatives at a library in Washington's economically depressed Anacostia neighborhood.
