The Ocean at the End of the Lane — I read a little from the opening here. (Bonus! Additional beard.)
Not gonna shut up about this book until it’s out and you all read it because I read it in October and I still can’t get it out of my mind.
I don’t know what is going to happen to print publishing. People in publishing take publishing very seriously, probably because in order to get their jobs, they had to kill a lot of good, creative people who did not take publishing very seriously.
Miracle, babe, shhhhhh about all the people I killed to get this job!

The gulf between Goodreads and the next nearest contender is tremendous. None of the other sites, at the moment, are going to be capable of having the impact and marketing reach of Goodreads today from the publisher’s perspective. That means that, as in so many other cases, Amazon now has another platform that there’s no alternative to.
