Publisher predicts the publishing recession will improve

According to GalleyCat, Allan Kornblum, publisher of the non-profit Coffee House Books, thinks that the publishing recession will begin to improve by 2011. Since Coffee House Books depends on donations for 40 percent of their income, they have, GalleyCat noted, a ground-level perspective on the recession.

I think it’s important to remember that the recession is temporary, that things will improve. And that meanwhile, books are still being published, and people are still buying books. I know I am.

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.
