Another Editor Says the Industry is Changing and Authors Have Options

Depending on which author/writer forums you visit, which blogs you read, you'll still read comments that traditional publishing is the only valid option for authors. They may say anything else is a waste of time because it actually hurts your reputation rather than helps. While that may have been true most of the time years ago, the industry is changing and, as I've mentioned in this blog before, traditional editors are starting to say so. This time it's a children's book acquisitions editor and that's good news because entry into the kid lit world is supposed to be a very hard nut to crack.

Katara Patton discusses this and more at the Ministry Marketing Solutions blog http://ministrymarketingsolutions.blogspot.com/2009/02/want-to-write-and-publish-childrens.html
I think it's this week's must read.

Good Writing & God Bless,
