Amazon just released this news today: <a class="postlink" href="http://phx.corporate-ir.net/phoenix.zhtml?c=176060&p=irol-newsArticle&ID=1565581&highlight=" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://phx.corporate-ir.net/phoenix.zht ... highlight=</a> Just yesterday I listened to THIS PODCAST by Adam Carolla about the fucking nightmare it was trying to work with his current hardcover book publisher to do a totally self-produced second audio book. Basically, AceMan was going to do everything for it; content, record it in the studio, etc., and cut them in for half. And they didn't get it, and fucked around until AceMan said "fuck it... you're out". It really is worth a listen if you want to hear how archaic some of the agents and publishers are when it comes to the new technology and distribution. I have no idea how representative it is of the industry, but in this case, it's mind-numbing. FOCUS: Books in print. What's your take?
