Flammarion Publisher quotes by Ann Handley
#1. Today, however, every company has become a de facto publisher, creating content that's valued by those they want to reach. #Quote by Ann Handley
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Camille Flammarion
#2. The universe is so immense that it appears immutable, and that the duration of a planet such as that of the earth is only a chapter, less than that, a phrase, less still, only a word of the universe's history. #Quote by Camille Flammarion
Flammarion Publisher quotes by John Locke
#3. Slavery is so vile and miserable an Estate of Man, and so directly opposite to the generous Temper and Courage of our Nation; that 'tis hardly to be conceived, that an Englishman, much less a Gentleman, should plead for't.. And truly, I should have taken Sr. Rt: Filmer's "Patriarcha" as any other Treatise, which would perswade all Men, that they are Slaves, and ought to be so, for such another exercise of Wit, as was his who writ the Encomium (Praise) of Nero, rather than for a serious Discourse meant in earnest, had not the Gravity of the Title and Epistle, the Picture in the Front of the Book, and the Applause that followed it, required me to believe, that the Author and Publisher were both in earnest. I therefore took it into my hands with all the expectation and read it through with all the attention due to a Treaties, that made such a noise at its coming abroad and cannot but confess my self mightily surprised, that in a Book which was to provide Chains for all Mankind, I should find nothing but a Rope of Sand, useful perhaps to such, whose Skill and Business it is to raise a Dust, and would blind the People, the better to mislead them, but in truth is not of any force to draw those into Bondage, who have their Eyes open, and so much Sense about them as to consider, that Chains are but an Ill wearing, how much Care soever hath been taken to file and polish them. #Quote by John Locke
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Diane Wakoski
#4. One, I have a wonderful publisher, Black Sparrow Press; as long as they exist, they will keep me in print. And they claim they sell very respectable numbers of my books, so I guess, and it's true, every place I go, my books are in libraries and on bookshelves. #Quote by Diane Wakoski
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Rayne Hall
#5. Authors today need a publisher as much as they need a tapeworm in their guts. #Quote by Rayne Hall
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Christina Baker Kline
#6. With a hardcover, you get two chances, a year apart, for the book to make an impact - often with a new cover featuring artfully crafted snippets of reviews, a new marketing campaign and maybe even a new publisher. #Quote by Christina Baker Kline
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Susan Cain
#7. (You wouldn't be reading this book if I hadn't convinced my publisher that I was enough of a pseudo-extrovert to promote it.) #Quote by Susan Cain
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Kailin Gow
#8. You don't have to wait to be "Accepted" by a publisher or agent to become a Millionaire Author and live a glamorous life traveling, living near celebrities in Hollywood and California, and being able to be hired to speak all over the world. I did it without being traditionally published, and it is the greatest feeling in the world to have that freedom. - Kailin Gow, Millionaire Self-Made Author #Quote by Kailin Gow
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Roy A. Higgins
#9. Finding an Agent is not a problem.
Finding a publisher is not a problem.
Finding readers now that's a problem. #Quote by Roy A. Higgins
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Patricia Highsmith
#10. The first person you should think of pleasing, in writing a book, is yourself. If you can amuse yourself for the length of time it takes to write a book, the publisher and the readers can and will come later. #Quote by Patricia Highsmith
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Catherine Ryan Hyde
#11. One of the nice things about publishing with Amazon is that the window for marketing is much longer than with a traditional publisher because these titles are not coming off of shelves. #Quote by Catherine Ryan Hyde
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Nick Harkaway
#12. Booksellers are tied to publishing - they need conventional publishing models to continue - but for those companies, that's not the case. Amazon is an infrastructure company; Apple sells hardware; Google is really an advertising company. You can't afford as a publisher to have those companies control your route to market. #Quote by Nick Harkaway
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Osman Rashid
#13. As things go digital, the notion of new editions will go away. A publisher can add video and assessment content at scale, make the change in 30 seconds and it's just a software update. #Quote by Osman Rashid
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Adrian McKinty
#14. Every publisher or agent I've ever met told me the same thing - that Irish readers don't want to read about the bad old days of the Troubles; neither do the English and Americans - they only want to read about the Ireland of The Quiet Man, when red-haired widows are riding bicycles and everyone else is on a horse. #Quote by Adrian McKinty
Flammarion Publisher quotes by J.A. Konrath
#15. If a traditional publisher offered me a quarter of a million dollars for a novel, I'd consider it. But anything less than that, I'm sure I can do better on my own. #Quote by J.A. Konrath
Flammarion Publisher quotes by A.J. Liebling
#16. Last week, I had to offer my publisher a bottle that was far too good for him, simply because there was nothing between the insulting and the superlative. #Quote by A.J. Liebling
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Ellen Datlow
#17. Amanda Hocking and Hugh Howey have been successful in their self-publishing ventures. But notice that Hocking would prefer to write and hand over the editing, promotion, and selling to a traditional publisher. #Quote by Ellen Datlow
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Terena Scott
#18. If you are working with authors, you are accepting a great responsibility and must tread very carefully. The author's work is a part of herself, a creative endeavor she has poured her heart and soul into. Protecting and nurturing that work and the author is part of the job of a publisher. #Quote by Terena Scott
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Chuck Wendig
#19. The writer is editor, marketer, blogger, reader, thinker, designer, publisher, public speaker, budget-maker, contract reader, trouble-shooter, coffee-hound, liver-pickler, shame-farmer, god, devil, gibbering protozoa. #Quote by Chuck Wendig
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Ronald H. Nash
#20. Efforts to remove the Christian faith from subjects like American history distort the content of the subject. Just as wrong is the idea that an evangelical textbook publisher should make it appear that evangelicals played a major role at every point in the history of the U.S. All such efforts are a travesty of history. #Quote by Ronald H. Nash
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Sally Hawkins
#21. I remember once giving my dad some drawings and writings and said, 'If you could just give these to the publisher, that would be great.' And I was about five! #Quote by Sally Hawkins
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Samuel R. Delany
#22. Many of the early greats of sf - Hugo Gernsback (publisher of Amazing Stories) in particular - saw themselves as educators. The didactic thrust of science fiction got the genre initially pegged as children's fare. It was seen, at its best, as an extension of school and, at its worst, as teenage wish fulfillment. #Quote by Samuel R. Delany
Flammarion Publisher quotes by E.N. Joy
#23. There are Christian fiction writers and then there are Christians who write fiction. There is Christian fiction, then there is what some consider to be church fiction or church drama. You have some authors who didn't necessarily set out to write Christian fiction, but they were placed in that category by either their publisher or the book stores simply shelve them that way. And of course you have the writers whose work is categorized as Christian fiction but they do not write for a Christian fiction imprint, which means they are not necessarily writing with any type of guidelines. I can't speak for any other Christian fiction author or author who either chose or by default was placed in the Christian fiction category, but I am a Christian fiction writer who writes for a Christian fiction imprint. That is my choice on purpose.

I'll be the first to admit that yes, I have a ghost writer; the Holy Ghost! I take dictation from the Holy Spirit when I write my stories. My Holy Spirit does not curse nor does He describe explicit sex scenes for me to deliver to God's people. I write Christian fiction, not inspirational fiction, not faith based fiction or anything else. Christ is in what I do "CHRISTian" fiction. I'm not worrying about "keepin'" it real. The Bible is as real as it gets and if the Holy Spirit didn't instruct the authors of the Bible to curse people out and describe explicit sex scenes, then why on earth should He start using me to do it now? So my concern is #Quote by E.N. Joy
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#24. For a year or two past my 'publisher,' falsely so called, has been writing from time to time to ask what disposition should be made of the copies of 'A Week on the Concord and the Merrimack Rivers' still on hand, and at last suggesting that he had use for the room they occupied in his cellar. So I had them all sent to me here, and they have arrived to-day by express, filling the man's wagon,--706 copies out of an edition of 1000 which I bought of Munroe four years ago and have been ever since paying for, and have not quite paid for yet. The wares are sent to me at last, and I have an opportunity to examine my purchase. They are something more substantial than fame, as my back knows, which has borne them up two flights of stairs to a place similar to that to which they trace their origin. Of the remaining two hundred and ninety, seventy-five were given away, the rest sold. I have now a library of nearly nine hundred volumes, over seven hundred of which I wrote myself.
Is it not well that the author should behold the fruits of his labor? #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Trip Adler
#25. We actually determine whether the book is read and make payments to the publisher based on that. #Quote by Trip Adler
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Jeffrey Zeldman
#26. I was a journalist, but I was starving. And I've written fiction, but I couldn't get a publisher. So, I was basically a very frustrated creative person working in advertising, and even there, I have a great idea that client won't buy it. #Quote by Jeffrey Zeldman
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
#27. The orgastic moment for me is when I hand a manuscript to my publisher and say, 'Here! I'm all through with it. I never want to see it again,'" she said. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Jeff Lindsay
#28. I didn't expect any success at all. I was rejected by every publisher in the world and every agent in town. #Quote by Jeff Lindsay
Flammarion Publisher quotes by John F. Kennedy
#29. I do ask every publisher, every editor, and every newsman in the nation to reexamine his own standards, and to recognize the nature of our country's peril. In time of war, the government and the press have customarily joined in an effort based largely on self-discipline, to prevent unauthorized disclosures to the enemy. In time of "clear and present danger," the courts have held that even the privileged rights of the First Amendment must yield to the public's need for national security. #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Ellen Hopkins
#30. And at some point I would like to talk my publisher into doing an anthology of my poetry alongside some teen readers' poetry. It would be fun, and really wonderful to get their stuff out there. #Quote by Ellen Hopkins
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Anne Lamott
#31. My father was a writer, so I grew up writing and reading and I was really encouraged by him. I had some sort of gift and when it came time to try to find a publisher I had a little bit of an "in" because I had his agent I could turn to, to at least read my initial offerings when I was about 20. But the only problem was that they were just awful, they were just terrible stories and my agent, who ended up being my agent, was very, very sweet about it, but it took about four years until I actually had something worth trying to sell. #Quote by Anne Lamott
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Mitch Albom
#32. I had a very high-grade publisher tell me I was incapable of writing a memoir. #Quote by Mitch Albom
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Camille Flammarion
#33. Nature is so varied in its modes of action, so multiple in the manisftations of its power, that we have no night to set any limits to its capabilities. #Quote by Camille Flammarion
Flammarion Publisher quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#34. It would be much truer to say that a man will certainly fail, because he believes in himself. Complete self-confidence is not merely a sin; complete self-confidence is a weakness. Believing utterly in one's self is a hysterical and superstitious belief like believing in Joanna Southcote: the man who has it has 'Hanwell' written on his face as plain as it is written on that omnibus." And to all this my friend the publisher made this very deep and effective reply, "Well, if a man is not to believe in himself, in what is he to believe?" After a long pause I replied, "I will go home and write a book in answer to that question." This is the book that #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Dan Brown
#35. Critics have found in the narrative a veneer of erudition that cloaks nothing more than a James Bond-style romp, albeit a highly addictive one. His publisher has described it as 'a thriller for people who don't like thrillers'. One newspaper put it thus: 'It is terribly written, its characters are cardboard cutouts, the dialogue is excruciating in places and, a bit like a computer manual, everything is overstated and repeated - but it is impossible to put the bloody thing down. #Quote by Dan Brown
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Deborah Meyler
#36. You know, what I've always done is take a look through a book, look at the paper stock, the printing, the publisher, the actual content, and, taking everything into account, I price it ... And now I can't. The fact that I can check this book ... - the fact that I can check this book on the Internet means that I have to check this book on the Internet. #Quote by Deborah Meyler
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Ashwin Sanghi
#37. My self-publishing adventure led to my work being picked up by a traditional publisher and eventually hitting the bestseller lists. That led to two more bestselling novels. #Quote by Ashwin Sanghi
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Robert Masello
#38. If you feel like keeping a journal-that neither you nor anyone else on earth will ever want to read-be my guest. But if you want to write something that may eventually see the light of day, that a magazine might buy or a publisher publish, then you'll have to knock off the journaling and do the grunt work that real writing requires. #Quote by Robert Masello
Flammarion Publisher quotes by J.A. Konrath
#39. Authors need to decide if they want to keep forever to themselves, or share forever with a publisher who takes over half the cover price. #Quote by J.A. Konrath
Flammarion Publisher quotes by John Carmack
#40. Sharing the code just seems like The Right Thing to Do, it costs us rather little, but it benefits a lot of people in sometimes very significant ways. There are many university research projects, proof of concept publisher demos, and new platform test beds that have leveraged the code. Free software that people value adds wealth to the world. #Quote by John Carmack
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Jon Doust
#41. The boarding school memoir or novel is an enduring literary subgenre, from 1950s classics such as The Catcher in the Rye to Curtis Sittenfeld's Prep. Doust's recognisably Australian contribution to the genre draws on his own experiences in a West Australian boarding school in this clever, polished, detail-rich debut novel. From the opening pages, the reader is wholly transported into the head of Jack Muir, a sensitive, sharp-eyed boy from small-town WA who is constantly measured (unfavourably) against his goldenboy brother. The distinctive, masterfully inhabited adolescent narrator recalls the narrator in darkly funny coming-of-age memoir Hoi Polloi (Craig Sherborne) - as does the juxtaposition of stark naivety and carefully mined knowingness.' - Bookseller+Publisher #Quote by Jon Doust
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Robert Shea
#42. This whole phenomenon of the diversion of organizations from their purposes and ideals does not seem very serious when the scum rise to the top in the bridge club or the offices of a small magazine publisher. #Quote by Robert Shea
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Tracie Peterson
#43. Authors can get an attitude of us-against-them when it comes to publishers, but learning how authors and editors can work together taught me to look at my work in a different way and to make that work as solid as possible before it ever goes to the publisher. #Quote by Tracie Peterson
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Camille Flammarion
#44. That hemisphere of the moon which faces us is better known than the earth itself; its vast desert plains have been surveyed to within a few acres; its mountains and craters have been measured to within a few yards; while on the earth's surface there are 30,000,000 square kilometres (sixty times the extent of France), upon which the foot of man has never trod, which the eye of man has never seen. #Quote by Camille Flammarion
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Ellen Glasgow
#45. The share of the sympathetic publisher in the author's success - the true success so different from the ephemeral - is apt to be overlooked in these blatant days, so it is just as well that some of us should keep it in mind. #Quote by Ellen Glasgow
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Andrea Davis Pinkney
#46. When I'm not writing or working on books as a publisher, I'm doing things that make me happy. One is skiing with my kids and husband. I love sports. #Quote by Andrea Davis Pinkney
Flammarion Publisher quotes by Terri Windling
#47. Since fantasy isn't about technology, the accelleration has no impact at all. But it's changed the lives of fantasy writers and editors. I get to live in England and work for a New York publisher! #Quote by Terri Windling
