Taking the mystery out of independent publishing, Jessica Tribble of Poisoned Pen Press reveals the truth about genre authors and how they view technology. “These are people who really have the passion for writing,” she tells Chris Kenneally. “They want to make sure that their word and their content gets out there. The book as a form is not as important to them as the book as entertainment is.”
Tribble spoke while attending PubWest 2010, the annual conference of the Publishers Association of the West, held last week in Santa Fe. She also explained the nuances in three types of reading: Airplane reading; bubble bath reading; and bedtime reading. Warning: Don’t bring a Kindle to a bathtub!
