The January 11, 2017 edition of The Hot Sheet from Porter Anderson and Jane Friedman is a big start to the new year, with TWO roundups of predictions for the coming year, one for traditionally publishing authors and one for self-publishing indie authors. We also have a summary of book sales performance in 2016 and a look at one of the most wrenching issues in terms of freedom of expression — which publishing historically staunchly supports, of course — we've seen in years.
The latest edition of The Hot Sheet has these publishing industry features for our author-subscribers:
• Indie Authors in 2017: Professionalization Is the Buzzword
• Traditional Publishing in 2017: Fewer Contracts Overall?
• Print Sales Were Up in 2016, but Barnes & Noble Isn’t Celebrating
