welcome to publishing talk

Welcome to Publishing Talk. This blog will be a regular source of articles, comment and opinion on trends in publishing – both print and digital. I use a very wide definition of publishing – anyone who produces original, branded content for print, web or audio is a publisher!
Topics will include book, journal and magazine publishing, digital media, social media, Web 2.0, podcasting, marketing and market research.
Do join in the conversation by commenting on postings if you wish, and subscribe to the RSS feed to make sure you get the latest articles.
There will also be periodic contributions from guest writers, offering a range of expertise and perspectives.
We hope hope you find the articles useful. Let us know what you think, and hope to talk publishing with you soon!
