More distressing publishing news

Nielsen Bookscan has found that of 86,000 new titles published in the UK in 2009, 59,000 sold an average of 18 copies. 

On the one hand, that makes me feel a little better about all my rejections. The "experts" printed thousands of books nobody wanted to buy, so their judgment of what is commercially viable isn't infallible.

On the other hand, if the publishers are losing millions of dollars then they are going to take less chances on unknown authors who have no platform.

On an unrelated note, this may be the future of e-publishing.  I certainly hope so.

Cosplayers The Movie Facebook page

I'm not sure why I haven't posted this here before, but we have a Facebook page for the film right here.

And for those who haven't watched the film yet, the Crunchyroll page is here.

Also, I'm working out details for a web series followup to the film. Stay tuned for more details!
