On looking and Leaping

Thanks to Jules Jones for drawing my attention to this interview with Loose Id's Doreen DeSalvo which draws attention to the fact that starting a successful epublisher requires experience, planning, money, and did I mention planning?

And I quote: "We spent over eight months developing the Loose Id name, our business plan, our reader and author community, our branding, and our Web site before we sold a single book. We invested a lot of time in hiring the best editors, wooing a solid stable of launch authors, soliciting manuscripts, and interviewing cover artists."

I am currently revising the list of erotic romance epublishers. Quite a few new ones but I suspect I will be moving many of them down to the dead markets section by the end of the year.
