Summer Vacation

 Q: I recently heard a comment that the big publishers are trying to hold onto an old model of publishing that doesn’t work so well anymore. Is this true? Why doesn’t it work, and how could the model be changed?

Good question. I have no answers. As someone who’s always been traditionally published and bears some scars from that model, I hope someone comes up with solutions. I have an agent who believes in it, and friends who are doing quite well – some astonishingly well – so it can work. I plan to venture into self-publishing with a series now out of print but the project isn’t ready for launch yet so I have no lessons learned to share. 

So, instead, let me indulge myself and maybe give you a moment to breathe deeply and relish summer with a couple photos from a tiny slice of paradise: the Hawaiian island of Kauai.
