Why publishers don't like working with start-ups
Digital Book World    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
From Andrew Rhomberg: It's not true that all publishers don't like working with start-ups, but as the founder of one such start-up in the publishing world, Jellybooks, I can tell you firsthand that what might seem like a home-run partnership doesn't always come to fruition. Now, you might say that I'm just being a big ol' complainer and this is just sour grapes (I'd understand), but I shall try to be as balanced as possible. More

This is a rumor we have no reason to believe except it comes from a major Apple investor who says he's heard it from "multiple sources." According to our source, who asked not to be named, there appears to be some truth to the widespread rumors that Apple is preparing to launch a smaller and cheaper version of the iPad — often called the iPad mini or iPad air and usually described as having a 7.85-inch screen.

paidContent    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In February, Barnes & Noble said it wouldn't carry Amazon Publishing titles in its stores. "Our decision is based on Amazon's continued push for exclusivity with publishers, agents and the authors they represent," B&N chief merchandising officer Jaime Carey said in a statement.

From Michael Erard: Before we get started, you should know this about me: I've written short stories, news articles, essays, reviews and a couple of nonfiction books.

The garden of the future
Greenhouse Grower    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
From Allan Armitage: The more I look at the direction landscaping, gardening and consumerism is taking, the more I know I am right. For years we have heard that gardens are getting smaller, young people are too busy and distracted to garden and annual and perennial gardens are just too much work.

In fact, I will take this one step further. More
