An Interview With Jason Sizemore

Bibliophile Stalker has an interview with Jason Sizemore, the publisher of Apex Publications, here. It's a very good interview, and I especially like this part:


Any advice for aspiring publishers?

Please, I implore you, have a business plan. If you’re not serious about the gig, then don’t bother, otherwise, you’re just going to sully the reputation of the small press even further.


How very true. When I earned my Certificate in Publishing last year from Boston University, I learned the first rule of publishing: "Publishing is a business." It doesn't matter how much you personally like the material you're publishing; you have to approach publishing as a business, or you won't succeed.

Jason's also got some good advice for writers too. Go read.

Comments

How disappointing. He doesn't once mention his career as an outfielder for the Cleveland Indians.
Mixing up your Jasons and Gradys again? :-)

I Emily Lattellaed once.
Although the two are not mutually exclusive... :-)
