Publishing Pulse for Friday, 11/29

Around the Web

After you're done braving the Black Friday crowds today, check out some of these tidbits from around the web:

~In PW’s newsletter The Bookseller, Sarah Shaffi writes about the possibility of consumer backlash to Amazon due to a new documentary, Panorama, which reveals working conditions inside Amazon warehouses.

~Michael Larsen of Larsen-Pomada Literary Agency shares an alliterative list of secrets to publishing success on Chuck Sambuchino’s blog:

~According to an article in The Guardian,  a new survey reveals the majority of teens and young adults prefer to read old-fashioned books—you know, the ones with pages and covers—over e-readers.

~And finally, Philip B. Katz takes on commas and other pesky punctuation marks in After Deadline, the NY Times blog devoted to grammar, usage, and style.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and the kick-off to the holiday season!

A Jersey girl born and bred, Rosie Genova left her heart at the shore, which serves as the setting for much of her work. Her new series, the Italian Kitchen Mysteries, is informed by her deep appreciation for good food, her pride in her heritage, and her love of classic mysteries, from Nancy Drew to Miss Marple. Her debut novel, Murder and Marinara,  released October 1. An English teacher by day and novelist by night, Rosie also writes women’s fiction as Rosemary DiBattista. She lives fifty miles from the nearest ocean  in central New Jersey, with her husband and two of her three sons.
