Today’s links of interest:

  • How Not To Sell Books – One publisher’s attempt to create a massive marketing campaign is beset by limited imagination.
  • Will Lemony Snicket Characters Be Killed Off?
    Apparently, you can’t end a popular series without a little death.
  • A blockbuster season
    So many Fall round-ups to choose from…apparently there will be a lot of books published in the coming months. Do not say that you haven’t been warned.
  • Hollow Victory
    After winning a court case against Star magazine, a book’s author finds there’s no market for her "Devil Wears Prada" story. A fear of litigation or a story that doesn’t need to be told?
  • 5 hours of Welty footage discovered
    Eudora Welty reads her work. Would now be a good time for us to note that we as a nation have no idea what treasures we’re hiding? Thought so.
  • Getting paid can be a royal pain for recording artists
    A really good, really interesting look at the numbers side of the business. Yes, it’s music. Same concept for publishing.
