Publishing houses that they charge for publishing a book are seen typically in much negativo.Si think is not right to pay to see each publish an original work and rightly believes that the publisher actually being an entrepreneur,if you decide to publish an author should have a risk margin,otherwise what entrepreneur sarebbe.I purists are horrified to hear that someone should buy the publication of a work and publishers to support,for better or worse they are known and are also indicated in some of the web sites such as,They are almost always perceived as fraudulent. In a recent article I read a blog of a trap that a journalist,a literary critic, He has tended to some publishers pay.
It was fun to send a novelette,specially written in bad Italian and with the so obvious macroscopic errors that would not have been possible even not notice through a cursory reading of the text.
Well despite this, all these publishers have responded by proposing author a book deal,obviously with contribution,without raising any objection on the text or without minimally detect any inconsistency.
Here we are faced with an evidence that tends to get just a fleecing and gain some speculating that natural instinct of vanity there,do not hide it, for all those who write.
But I would not be so categorical in giudizio.O meglio.Se the publisher simply get paid to do or buy the author a disproportionate number of copies and does nothing else,He commits certainly something that has to scam limits.
But if on the purchase of a limited or otherwise reasonable number of copies from the author then makes a real service by publisher,through careful editing of the text and a distribution that at least tries to bring the book in as many libraries as possible,I would not feel the scandal at.
Besides, I happened to read texts in my opinion very valid and compelling novels,published by authors with publishers for a fee or double track.
A double track because they can ask or not to ask for a contribution to an author,according to their evaluations.
The question that comes to mind is one:They would never come to light these texts through pure publishers?
Hardly I believe and is not to say that a work published with contributions should be rejected and can not be better than a pure published by a publisher.
I would not be so sure that all publishers pay but they do their job of editor are so negative,precisely because they often still publish works that have value and that the publishers would not perhaps pure and never considered.
But not because they are invalid,but maybe because they do not represent a commercial product,do not tell a story that you can sell,They do not have characters that readers are looking at that particular time.
Let us remember that the publisher is an entrepreneur and as such aims to gain:does charity,it is not his job.
So publishing thinks he can sell his product,otherwise it would be exposed to an estimated perdita.Quanto would last in this case on the market?
No business can afford the budgets in red.
E 'wrong to think that when a book is rejected or is not considered by an editor it is because it is always so little valore.Non.
Often it can not be considered because it is not interesting topics judged at that particular time.
ne can, to stay in the theme of the title, that literary awards have a specific function just because they can ignore the publisher,focusing attention only on the quality of the writing.
Prizes must not sell but rather to come to light worthy works that can also be very well published from publishing a fee.
There are no distinctions in this senso.Al limit you can think,but it is not always so,that pure publisher has made a critical assessment of the texts sent to it, accurato.Ma more so on the basis of what criteria did it and he discarded some and thought posting more?
Therefore literary prizes may signal the emergence and writings worthy of attention because there is no interest in publishing them to make a profit and then do not follow any of the fads that change constantly to logical almost always induced.
This applies to the unpublished but also for the published.
In these years of selection I can assure you that I read beautiful books published by small publishing houses, some of which I knew to be with the request for assistance,but that fact was not for me and no one I swore, Because impediment in the way negativo.Solo the quality of the writing and the interest it arouses is what differentiates a book by another.
