La Belle et La Bête

The beauty of the Internet, art (including  the book industry) is that we can all lose ourselves in fantasy and dream worlds – surely this is a tonic not a crime?

Interesting reading in the UK press about the demise of ‘Women’s Commercial Fiction’ – why does the UK (press) always criticize successful industries and people?

Besides, sales maybe down in the traditional printed book but there a new platforms to be exploited – with the advent of digital information systems and the Internet, the scope of publishing has expanded to include electronic resources, such as the electronic versions of books (eBooks) and periodicals, as well as micropublishing, websites, blogs,

Leave the arts alone! – after all we have little funding!

Get real! We are all taking a hit on sales, houses, pay packets etc. and any profit is a bonus for the National Debt.
