Predicting the future of publishing…

Publishing is an ever-changing landscape. Now with the merger of publishing giants, Random House and Penguin, the ground has shifted again. It is believed that the combined might of Penguin and Random house will publish up to 30% of all books sold in markets such as the UK. That is a significant slice of the pie!

It’s not something that I overly worry about, as what I do with Another Lost Shark Publications is so very different to the work the majors do. It is however, important to keep in touch with what’s happening. That’s why I have been trawling the web for the year’s publishing predictions. Here’s two of interest:

Coliloquy’s 9 Publishing Predictions & Mark Coker’s 21 Book Publishing Predictions.

That’s 30 ideas worth letting rattle around inside your head!

And in Another Lost Shark Publishing news, I am currently in discussion with one of the most awarded and exciting voices in QLD, Nathan Shepherdson. Look forward to a more detailed announcement soon!
