Authors Need to Get Involved

“If you had asked me two years ago, I would not have thought it was my responsibility. But I do think authors need to get involved with all sort of aspects of publishing and health of the publishing industry. This is not every man working for themselves, we need to think and work as a business. Authors have been protected for a long time, we are very well cared for, but we need to think about our other partners, from bookshops to publishing and self-publishing.”

–Ann Patchett, author and owner of Parnassus Books, Nashville, Tenn., in an interview with the Bookseller
