This week on the pod, a reader got in touch. She's having trouble being accepted by distributors but received an offer to license her books from an established publisher. What is in her best interest?

There is a far-fetched and wrong-headed idea that distributors are like ATM machines, marketing machines, and can just infinitely ship books to stores in return for a paycheck. This is very far from the truth so this week on the pod, we are going to answer a reader question, "How do you know what a distributor specializes in?"

Almost every time, new publishers that get in touch are asking for help with variations of how to be sold into various stores or simply to get the attention of a trade distributor. So we've boiled this down, what distributors look for, and told some anecdotes about our own experiences with trade distributors.

Two years ago, this pod was just an idea: that two publishing nerds could answer reader questions for ten minutes each week since we no longer have time for consulting and do not see other human beings. But 100 episodes later, we decided to recall our favorite publishing memories!

Amazon has manufactured a faux rivalry, driving a wedge between authors and publishers. This week on the pod, we diagnose and explain the difference between cover royalties, gross royalties, and net royalties...and how they are usually just misleading ways at the same outcome, yet Amazon's royalties are the smallest of all!

A year later, even as consumer habits resume and stores have reopened, account buying has changed their basic behaviors. This week, we look at how this affects publishers and how it will continue to change the industry even after COVID is contained.

How does a publisher evaluate their success? What are the numbers and measurements to look at? This week on the pod we take a good, hard look at how to chart your metrics and see how things are going for your press!

take it with you

Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:

Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:


This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:

Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.


Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.
