Weekend Reading - July 24th, 2015

There’s a lot going on in the self-publishing world. That’s why, every Friday, we collect the best of what our staff has been reading this week. Check out our suggestions below!

 

First up, what’s a week in indie publishing news without thoughts on Amazon? Industry heavy-hitter Mike Shatzkin lays out his case that Amazon is serving author’s interests better than the traditional publishers:

Next up, novelist Elle Casey has some great thoughts on grappling with reader expectations, especially when you work across genres:

Finally, it was announced this week that a self-published title has been longlisted for the Polari Prize. Tell us again how nobody self-publishes serious lit fic:
