Small-Church Pastor Vs. NYC Book Publishing

Guess which one wins?

The E-book revolution

I looked and looked and looked for a snippet I could put here without ruining it. It’s all one piece and must be read.

Especially if you’re a writer!

A small-church pastor has a thorough understanding of what’s happening with print publishing — including newspapers!

Meanwhile, the Megacorporations think witholding eBook editions will save their greed-driven and soon-obsolete jobs.

  1. Mike, thanks for the link. Fascinating stuff, isn’t it?

    Astute analysis. There’s a lesson (perhaps more than just one) for many business strategy & development types here.

    Good stuff. Thanks. One point I disagree with is the idea that print is going away if that means right away. Marginalized, yes. Gone someday, yes. But all print going away this year or next? Nope. The market for certain print projects, I think of them as beautiful books, will continue indefinitely.

      Yes, I agree. There will always be a market for the kind of souvenir books a publisher like Taschen produces, for example. Very large books with lots of high-quality color photographs.
