by Erica Verrillo on Publishing… and Other Forms of Insanity:
A while ago, I ran across an article in New York Magazine by Daniel Menaker, a senior literary editor at Random House. The title caught my eye: What Does the Book Business Look Like on the Inside?
This is a question every aspiring author wants answered, especially if they are trying to make a choice between traditional and self-publishing.
But as I read the article, I realized that it clarified my own experience with Random House, and it bolstered my decision to abandon the traditional publishing route with my subsequent books.
