Has Publishing Gone Nuts? Interview This Sunday

This Sunday at 4p EST, I’ll be on the air with Wordsmitten‘s Kate Sullivan, who interviews someone from the publishing industry each week on her radio show.

You can listen here via BlogTalkRadio.

The WordSmitten “About the Books” radio broadcast (and podcast) has been
nominated for the 2009 Gracie Awards (George Burns and Gracie Allen)
sponsored by the AWRT.org.
Recent Gracie Award-winners include Oprah’s Gayle King radio broadcast.
Recent guests include Pulitzer Prize-winning author Edward P.
Jones, journalist and author Gay Talese (Mr. New York), National Book
Award honorees Fiona Maazel and Sana Krasikov, sportswriter Jeff
Pearlman, and author Natalie Goldberg.

Last year, I spent a lovely time in the Florida area with the folks at Wordsmitten, when they hosted a one-day writing conference.

When you check out the BlogTalkRadio site, you’ll see the following colorful note:

last year’s visit to the WordSmitten event, and the rowdy authors
assembled for that spectacular writing conference (Connie May Fowler,
Robert Tarte, Alison Steele, Kate Sullivan, and Jane Friedman conducted
sessions), Jane Friedman came through unscathed despite flat tires, an
abundance of wine, merriment, and sassy writers.

The WordSmitten team is delighted she survived the writing conference
and authors’ parties. Even more interesting, we’re glad she still talks
to our editorial staff.

Hope you’ll listen in — and call-in with a question.

    One big concern a lot of online writers have is the issue of first rights. Does publishing even part of a novel online prevent you from getting a deal with a publishing house? So far, I have posted about 20% of mine on my blog and only just discovered this may prevent me from getting a publishing deal. I’d have thought it would be good publicity, but I guess the publishers feel they need to defend heir turf.
