Adventures in Publishing, a panel chat
Interesting panel discussion at R&D's new creative space in Honolulu. My two pals and I, novelist Tyler McMahon: How the Mistakes Were Made, and food writer Dabney Gough: Eat Good Food talked about the paths of our books to the bookshelf in our very different genres. Those two have very good books.
The audience seemed to mostly want to talk numbers, which was a bit surprising to me. I think (though I could be wrong) most of the audience weren't active in publishing, and, of all the possible directions the talk could have gone, the business aspect was what they decided to relate to the most.
