More about small publishers

Yesterday I mentioned that some big-time authors are choosing to offer their work to smaller firms. And today Bloomberg has a story about how such firms operate. (Link from booktrade.info.)

This is quite an interesting article, especially for those who are hoping to get taken on by a smaller firm, on the general principle that it's easier to get in there than at Random House. (A principle which is open to question.)

I think the answer lies in tweed jackets and lace-up boots. (See the article for explanation.)
