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.
