BooksForABuck.com Newsletter--November, 2011
News and Events
Welcome to the November edition of the BooksForABuck.com newsletter.
At a meeting of the Orange County (California) Romance Authors, I had the opportunity to hear Harlequin Editor Mary-Theresa Hussey saying that digital is where the action is in books. I've believed in digital for years and it's exciting to see the dreams of what was once a small band come to fruition. It's important to remember that innovation is driven by small companies and that's certainly been true in publishing. I'm proud to have been a part of the revolution. BooksForABuck.com is a decade old--and still growing.
