The global publishing market has never been more exciting, and every day myriad publishing stories cross my screen that I’d love to develop here at TNPS, but there simply isn’t time.
But if you’re reading TNPS in the first place you probably share my obsession with all things international publishing, and would no doubt enjoy some of these stories.
So a regular feature of TNPS is a collation of links to some of the best publishing stories around the web that I haven’t been able to devote a full post to.
Here’s today’s collation (and yes, there’s actually 12 this time around but if you don’t count you won’t notice):
Middle East – Yara Bamieh and Samar Mahfouz Barraj on Creating Award-winning Arabic Children’s Books.
Middle East / North Africa – Amir Tag Elsir’s ‘Ebola ’76’ and Ghayath al-Madhoun’s ‘Adrenaline’ Make Best Translated Book Award 2018 Longlists.
India / Bangladesh – Penguin books set foot in country’s publishing market (Or PRH India comes to Bangladesh.)
For those with a flair for the Romance languages or that have faith in Google Translate, check out José Manuel Anta’s Book Distribution roundup on Flipboard. Anta is Managing Director of the International Publishing and Distribution Association. Many of his post finds are in Spanish, French and Italian.
And for those seriously anal about the international publishing scene you can also find more from me at my own Flipboard roundup of global publishing news.
