Small talk

I'd previously blogged an earlier version of this article, on running a small publishing firm, by Two Ravens Press. I was reminded of Chaim Bermant many years ago saying that the only way to make a small fortune in publishing is to start with a large one. Two Ravens has one big advantage, that the main Scottish market is defined, the country has some good bookshops, 36 book festivals and a lively literature community. The disadvantage is living in one of the furthest out places in that country, making, say, a stall at a Festival impossible. Nevertheless, with tweaks, all small publishers could write something similar.,%20four%20and%20a%20half%20years%20on.html
