Is Your Publisher ‘Unbound’–or all tied up in Gordian Knots? Or Should that be – Nots? As in, “Hell no, I don’t want to read that! Why did you waste a tree printing it?”

Ever wish book publishers paid some real attention to what really interests your reading brainpan? Hmm? Care to put your dollars and scents, yes that’s a deliberate misplay on words. Cents is so predictable. Let’s play with sense a little more. After all they’re very important to your nose, your taste buds and your memory–scents are.  Got that? Okay, now let’s get back to Unbound–as in being unfettered, untied, unchained, unhindered–and free to move about at will. Would you like to pick the books you’d like to have published? You can at Unbound. Seriously. You might have to forgo some of that instant gratification that characterizes much of modern culture but eventually you can get what you want–as long as some other folks want it too.

Case in point:

Author Paul Kingsnorth is pitching The Wake on UnboundThe Wake is a historical novel about resistance fighters after the Battle of Hastings in 1066.  What the novel needs are pledges, supporters, interested potential readers willing to pay for the digital, hardback, or collector’s edition of the novel. There are other perks offered for greater levels of support for Kingsnorth’s novel–such as Dark Mountain’s anthology.  The book has garnered 70% of the pledges necessary for publishing via UnboundUnbound is a bit like Kickstarter for publishing. Sort of. Agents are still part of the publishing mix. View that tidbit as you will.
