Backword Books (of which I’m a member) has recently been discovered by Publishers Weekly. Exciting!
Publishers Weekly, the most influential daily news journal of the publishing industry, featured Backword Books in a piece published September 3.
(Interesting side note: a PW editor published an editorial – “I Don’t Want to Hate Self-Publishers” – complaining about Henry Baum, one of Backword’s founders, the same day.)
POD People also did a quick piece on Backword’s PW appearance that praises Baum’s Stands-With-Fist approach. (Sorry. “Dances With Wolves” was on a few days ago.)
In APPEARANCES news, several Backword Books authors will appear as guests Friday, September 11 on Stacey Cochran’s BookChatter, airing at 9 p.m., EDT.
