Ten global publishing stories not to be missed. 16 April 2018 collation

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 11 links. The extra one is on the house.):

UAE – Renowned authors to inspire kids at Sharjah Children’s Reading Festival.
Indonesia / UK – Londoners Show High Interest in Indonesian Literature Books.
India – Indian erotic fiction, and openness towards sex, boosted by digital tech and stories where the underdog takes control.
Nigeria – National library partners NYSC to promote reading culture.
Philippines – Coming soon: More European literature translated into PH languages.
India – Two new Indian literary prizes promise different agendas.
Nigeria – Nnedi Okorafor Calls On Nollywood to ‘Create Complex Female Characters’.
Indonesia – Is Indonesian Literature Written in English Still Indonesian Literature?

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.
