    OUCH!

    When students were assigned to play at being publishers, they came up with placeless, global titles -- and no fiction!

    Thank you for posting that. Yikes, what a bleak view of things.
    Interesting perspective on the industry though.

    I find that post incredibly disheartening...though probably the students were, to our great sorrow, correct.

    I think you will find top agents and editors always complaining about the difficulties of fiction publishing.

    Thanks for posting that link though. If anything was just important to read and now to do some internalization.

    Yeah, it would be nice to see a turn around. I'm not holding me breath, but I do keep writing.
