"It’s mediaschmerz—a sadness about the news cycle and news media, which is distinct from the experience of our everyday life. I’m not sure if I think this is good or bad. It simply is. Individual hope and national despair are not contradictions." @DKThomp greeneracresvaluenetwork.wordpress.com/2022/06/02/dai…

So, I got into a LONG!!! talk with a reader/friend of mine about the world of publishing. Now, I'm not an expert, but staring down the release of my 6th book (holy shit, 6th?!), I have to reflect on a few realities of publication & open a dialogue with the #WritingCommunity

A bit of background: I've been writing since 2006. I self-pub'd my first book in 2009, and continued with self-pub ever since. This was just before self-publication became vogue. And it was a conscious choice - and it was also how I learned what I know. The hard way.

My friend said, "Getting an agent is like winning the lottery". This isn't wrong.
I tried to query, and was shot down every. single. time.
This isn't unusual. In fact, every #writer know that when you're #querying, this is par for the course.

Heute geht es beim #autor_innensonntag von @JustinePust um: #miteinanderstattgegeneinander 🤝

Ich habe meine alten Messefotos durchwühlt und diesen #Throwback von der #FrankfurterBuchmesse2019 gefunden: Meine Kollegin @carina_schnell und ich beim Stand vom @KnaurVerlag.

1/8 Carina schnell und ich grin...Carina schnell und ich grin...
Irgendwie hat mich das Bild angelacht, weil es voll positiver Energie ist. Man sieht uns den Spaß an.

Carina und ich sind einen langen, teils ähnlichen Weg gegangen, anfangs #Indie, übers @Nornennetzwerk, nun veröffentlichen wir beide bei Knaur. Wir standen uns nie im Weg,

In “A New Copyright Bargain?”, @rgibli says that existing international #copyright laws are based on a number of assumptions that either no longer apply or have been disproven.

Is it time for a reexamination of the system we’ve developed?
One of those assumptions is that #copyright is a way to incentivize cultural production, but history and empirical evidence shows us the optimal copyright term to incentivize production is only 15-25 years.

Long copyright terms can actually discourage creativity.
It's also assumed that #copyright is necessary to encourage ongoing investment in existing works, but again empirical evidence shows the reverse: works in the public domain are more readily available.

Digitization is making it even easier for investment in public domain titles.
