Inside News From The World of Publishing

For those of us who are still in the "outside world" of small presses and independent publishing, it is often difficult to find out what's going on inside the world of traditional publishing. One professional writing group -- Sisters In Crime -- recently published an article that at least provides a glimpse of what's in the present and also what may be in the future of publishing in general. Sisters In Crime is a group of professional writers who specialize in mystery or crime-related novels and non-fiction books, but their interviews with traditional publishing insiders can benefit all of us, regardless of what genre we specialize in. Check out the following site. You may find it interesting, helpful, and certainly informative.
