For everything there is a season.  A time to gather stones and a time to scatter stones.  A time to merge companies and a time to spin off new companies.  Right now, it is a time for merging companies.

The “Big Five” are now the “Big Four.”

You may have heard about the recent merger between Simon & Schuster and Penguin Random House.  How does this new change affect you, as an author?

Today we are joined by our own Steve Laube, President of The Steve Laube Agency, to explain the significance of this news and to help us navigate the changes in the world of publishing.

    This is a really tough one for a sonnet, y’know????

    I’m seeing Random Penguin
    as something of a loss
    to publishing as they begin
    to look a lot like Thanos,
    leaving half of all alive
    to give thanks (as they must),
    but half again will not survive
    and thus be turned to dust,
    just like William Kimber,
    Airlife and the rest,
    and so I will stay limber
    and fight on for the best;
    RP’s inevitable, but my stand
    is that, hey, “I…AM…IRON…MAN.”

    Is it really that hard to get a book you have written published? I’ve always heard it’s extremely difficult to even get a publisher to look at your manuscript.
