Micropublishing, Reddit, and other Weekly Discoveries: Jan 4-10, 2013

Seven publishing trends that will define 2013

I’ve seen “micropublishing” come up a few times this past week.

We’ll see if the term sticks, but for now, guess I gotta track this term too.

Read the article though – serials shows up yet again! It’s the hot new trend for 2013!
