…this blog, that is.*
Since I’m new to the publishing thing, and maybe some of you are too, I thought I’d blog here about the process — all things Long For This World-related, broadly speaking (more like the literary life in general) between now and when the thing is actually between hard covers (clad in evocative, alluring jacket art, of course) in a bookstore or on a Web site near you.
About this blog’s subtitle: there is likely nothing new I can say about the experience of writing or publishing a novel. Except that it’s a pretty weird time on the planet — the economics of everything, the tools of mass communication, the rise (rise? emergence? triumph? hard to say…) of self-publishing and DIY arts production and distribution. Everything’s spinning and turning — exhilaratingly for some, nauseatingly for others.
Thanks for visiting, and for your interest. I hope you’ll come along for the ride…
