~A young woman's comic adventures in search of love & belonging~

“There is something very odd about this war of words between successful authors on different sides of a tectonic shift in the publishing world: it doesn’t exist in many similar industries facing the same sort of technological upheaval.   You don’t hear Christina Aguilera or Adam Levine knocking indie bands.  Instead they joined a show called “The Voice” which aims to capitalize on the credibility of indie artists by finding journeyman artists and giving them a shot at major label contracts.  Indie filmmakers are revered, not reviled, partly because they eschew the studio system and its constraints on artistic expression.  And the art world seems keenly attuned to the idea that the next Georgia O’Keeffe might be producing revolutionary work somewhere out of their sight until she turns 30.

Publishing is different from other creative industries because the machinery has not yet adapted to the profound technological shift it is undergoing. “
