How the Internet Has Got Publishing By Its Tail

I recently did an hour-long interview with the delightful Patricia Volonakis Davis, Editor-in-Chief of Harlots’ Sauce Radio. Patricia describes the interview with me as such:

Those of us who read books, and those of us who write them, will be equally enthralled with [this] interview on Harlots’ Sauce Radio this month. You’ll find her savvy in her assessments of the industry’s ‘buzziest’ new toys, such as Authonomy, Smashwords, and Kindle 2, and frank in her judgments of trade dinosaurs like Publishers Weekly.

    Thanks, Jane…
    Again, thought your interview was terrific. I’ll take a look at Blurb and am passingly familiar with Alice Pope’s site.

    I’ll check back later.

    Much appreciated,
    Robert Wahl – a.k.a. Pyxx, Haste yee back 😉

    I usually recommend as an excellent service for illustrated print books. If you’re thinking of digital publishing, then any digital publishing service that allows you to upload/sell PDF files would be ideal, since PDFs preserve all of your formatting & image quality. (Lulu is a good example.)

    At the moment, I’m not aware of any publishing services that focus on children’s literature. I’ve sent your comment to Alice Pope to get her take. She’s the editor of Children’s Writer’s & Illustrator’s Market, and has a blog over at If she has any useful suggestions, I’ll post them here.

    Dear Jane,
    I thought your interview with Harlot’s was great, full of info and I’ll listen again to make sure I didn’t miss anything.

    Got some questions… I write and illustrate, targeting primarily the Middle Grade bunch. For a closer look visit, http;//

    Is there anyone in that genre self publishing? If so, who? Are the digital e pub services today ready for quality illustration. Where should I be directing my energies to get the most out of my writing and illustrating?

    Would love to hear from you!

    Again, great Harlot’s interview.

    Haste yee back 😉
