Check out this humorous piece by Ellis Weiner in the New Yorker. A great lampoon of the publishing industry, it features an editor’s misguided advice on getting your book noticed. “Reddit bites,“ “Google scaffold,” and “FB/MS interlink torrent” anyone?
Oh yeah, and by the way, in this piece, the editor has moved all of the author’s photos out of his book and onto a Web page to make the “hard-copy version cheaper to produce.”
