What Are Your Publishing Resolutions for 2012?

What do you hope to accomplish in the new year?

By Edward Nawotka

With the new year upon us, it’s time to make your resolutions for 2012. What do you hope to accomplish in the new year? Is it finally getting your rights information into a digital database? Exploring or expanding into overseas markets? Redoubling your efforts to exploit the opportunities offered by social media? Experimenting with transmedia publishing?

For us, we resolve to work even harder to create opportunities for you to connect with your publishing colleagues across the globe and help facilitate working relationships. If we can help in anyway, let us know…and watch this space for new and exciting opportunities for you from Publishing Perspectives throughout 2012.

Happy New Year!

    As a publisher I am working to open my site to others in need of exposure for the genres I write, including sales. As an author I am not going to offer anymore books to Amazon, preferring instead to publish ebooks to them and keeping the books in distribution to other retailers; as it is clear that Amazon is unable or unwilling to sell them in print. I am concentrating more on finishing books which were postponed as the real life events of 2011 made it impossible to publish them and gain any kind of notice. I am also cutting back on social networking as that has taken too much writing time away from my already busy schedule. I am also taking steps to make the buying experience as easy as possible for customers visiting my site. Whatever happens in the future depends on the buying public, however, and I cannot predict how well that goes against the doomsday superstition which will most likely prevent people from making sensible buying decisions. The Mayans signaled the end of a cycle, while everyone else thinks it’s the end of the world. Books, therefore, will probably be secondary.
