Now the sad news is that Giovanni’s Room will be closing. We at TheBookPatch update the search engines regularly as they send their robot crawlers to seek whatever new information we post (your book in the bookstore is new information).

To be avoided in high-quality typesetting. Not for Lipsyte, apparently, who claims that “children’s literature didn’t always bear this overwhelmingly female imprint.” Leaving aside the question of what an “overwhelmingly female imprint” looks like, the truth is that children’s literature, more so than any other publishing genre aside from romance, has historically made room for female authors at times when they would have had to use a male pseudonym to have a writing career.

Howey’s methods and conclusions have been widely challenged–including his heavy reliance on data scraped from Amazon–and his views of publishing and self-publishing are unapologetically biased in favor of self-publishing.

This is SPAWN's mission and it is my personal mission. It offers small-time authors/publishers an excellent alternative that will give them more control, and will increase their sales and profits by using little known online channels when publishing their books/ebooks.
