    This article summarizes the book publisher sales for the first half of 2015, in which there is an overall decline in both e-books and hard copies. It’s interesting to see actual numbers since this relates directly to our class – we have talked about the possible decline of traditional publishing as well as that e-books sales are not doing that great either.

Self-Publishing Platforms: Women’s Playground or Last Resort? .Huffington Post. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/janice-sands/selfpublishing-platforms-_b_7080516.html. This article talks about the gender gap that exists in the publishing industry and that self-publishing is a resort for women to publish without getting “shut out of traditional publishing avenues.” We have talked about self-publishing in class and I think this article brings to light some of the reasons why people, or women in particular, turn to self-publishing – because it may be their only avenue to publish something.
  52.  Here’s why good editors are future-proof http://teleread.com/chris-meadows/editors-are-still-important-in-the-digital-era/ I enjoyed this article as it touched on the publishing side which I feel that we haven’t focused on as much in class. I find it interesting that the article mentions that self-published works could in fact end up with higher quality editing than those published through a house.

Rowling Classic http://www.ibtimes.com/expelliarmus-harry-potter-reborn-new-apple-inc-ebook-version-jk-rowling-classic-2132618 This article gives an example of ways in which books are becoming more interactive – these ‘enhanced’ ebooks offer special features not possible with a print book. It also shows that ebooks are valuable for successful authors as a way of relaunching their successful works.

Deutsche Welle. http://www.dw.com/en/how-publishers-deal-with-politically-persecuted-authors/a-18656649 The first article discusses how various publishers in Europe take it upon themselves to publish those works from the Middle East that are banned or condemned and their authors persecuted by the country. The piece has me questioning the motives of these European publishing ‘saviours,’ and whether they should really be flaunting the fact that they’re making profit from publishing as a means of upholding ‘human rights.’

If there’s one thing I’ve learned, self-publishing can be a extensively stressful and emotionally turbulent process. Far more than I thought it was. Either that or this author is just very mentally unstable. Cheers!
