Maguire PROCEED TO United Would Be Incredible Business-RodgersOn by
Maguire is expected to agree personal conditions and complete a medical at the Old Trafford membership over the weekend. Rodgers informed Sky Sports. The offer would make Maguire the most expensive defender in the global world, surpassing the 75 million pounds Liverpool paid Southampton for Dutch international Virgil van Dijk this past year. Rodgers added after Leicester 2-1 win over Atalanta in a pre-season friendly at the King Power Stadium on Friday. He’s a particular player, he’s not a player that people would like to lose.
Because there is certainly nothing more fundamental, more important, or even more difficult for authors to acquire on their own in paper publishing than distribution. If a publisher doesn’t properly modify your publication or chooses a negative cover, or writes a silly writer bio, or even engages in a giant marketing fail, the book can still make money.

But if the publisher doesn’t properly send out the book, then your reserve will be unavailable (or at least its availability will be severely curtailed), no one shall be in a position to buy it, and the writer will be hosed. Distribution is the one area where an author is very dependent on the publisher in paper publishing, and the area where publisher failures will have the most catastrophic results.
For all these reasons, I think it’s difficult to argue besides that paper distribution has typically been legacy publishing’s major value-add, and I’m amazed that this anodyne observation could provoke controversy, let consternation alone. Maybe in some circles, putting it so plainly just isn’t the done thing? It’s bad manners to depart from pretty talk about how exactly legacy publishers “nurture” authors, and to concentrate on the actual value instead? The reactions of other real estate agents and editors were more unexpected even. These reactions, and the attitudes in it, aren’t just immature.
They’re also fundamentally harmful. How can realtors and editors serve writers in a significantly changing industry if they won’t pay attention to new and contrary views? If they believe — and actually advise others — that it’s a blunder even to risk exposure to contrary views? And whether it’s not a good sign, what might one do to correct course and serve writers better?
I’ve tweeted this post to the folks I named in it, and I hope they’ll come by to offer their thoughts. Wouldn’t writers benefit from such a discussion? And in the end, isn’t that what we all want? Joe sez: I believe Barry’s well-reasoned, polite response to his critics and their childish behavior is admirable.
But I’d take it further. Paper distribution isn’t just the principal service legacy web publishers provide. It’s the only essential service they provide. Every other service can be acquired by a writer without the need for a legacy publisher’s involvement. Editing, cover art, proofing, marketing even, advertising, and advertising–a writer can source any or many of these for a one-time, sunk cost.
Why pay an editor a royalty forever? Some authors spend months–if not years–writing a book. The very best editor in the world shouldn’t require more than a few weeks to edit a manuscript–and a few days is probably much more common. But it gets even more lopsided. Because this not primary just, but essential service–paper distribution–has never equally been provided.
Some authors get the five-star treatment with books available everywhere books can be sold. Almost all authors aren’t so lucky. The majority of my peers acquired their books for sale in a Walmart never. Some didn’t even enter the chain bookstores. Some who got into the string stores only experienced one copy available for sale, and it was spine-out in the section. So the thing that writers needed most from publishers–paper distribution, the fundamental service publishers were supposed to provide–has been provided unevenly.
To agent Sorche Fairbank… still think it’s so out-to-lunch to suggest that posting is a lottery, with only a few big winners out of everyone who purchases a solution? When Barry talks of the perfect of legacy publishing, he’s discussing obtaining huge progress and having blockbuster sales. It really is indeed possible.
