Cover to Cover #418A: Traveling Library Day

Nights of Villjamur

Buy at Amazon

Mike M is a little burned out from moving back to the old studio, and Mike S is starting to feel jetlagged, but it's all good.

Mike S talks about the Wylie Agency's Odyssey Editions exclusive deal with to provide Kindle editions of his clients' properties, and the backlash from Random House and MacMillan about the deal and the attempts to spread fear and doubt about alternative publishing options and self-publishing options that Mike sees around.

  1. Can i post a link to one of your podcasts (it's the one whit Tracy Hickman talkign about Dragon Bard) on my blog?

  2. Okay, maybe I missed something, but what's with the move back to the old studio? Was the new studio just a temporary thing? You guys seemed pretty amped up about the new studio and now on this episode you're back in the old. I'm just confused.

    • The old studio has more space than the new one, but the new one was where all the experimentation with video and other upgrades succeeded.

      So now the old studio is the new studio, and it's got all the bells and whistles from the old new studio with all of the bugs already worked out.
