Amazon ebook deal bypasses publishers
A top litery agent angers publishers by bypassing them and striking a deal to sell ebooks through Amazon: http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2010/jul/23/publishers-wylies-ebook-deal-amazon. Times are changing in the publishing industry and the need for a traditional publisher may indeed be diminishing. What’s their role in these modern times? Is this the end of traditional publishing? What does it mean to you - the writer? Let us know over on our forums: http://www.oneofus.co.uk/forums/index.php?/topic/2015-what-do-you-think-of-wylies-ebook-deal-with-amazon/

New! One Of Us Creative Writing Bookshop
We’ve got a new addition to the website, a bookshop dedicated to creative writing books! You can now browse through loads of books about creative writing. The bookshop is in association with Amazon UK so once you’ve added a book (or books!) to your shopping basket you are then taken to Amazon to make the purchase securely using your existing Amazon account. Buying books through the shop helps support this website too. :)
In the near future I plan to put together a few lists using Amazon’s Listmania feature and will include these in the shop. If you’ve got a list yourself, send me a PM (personal message) on the forums and I’ll see about including it too.

Hiking the Inca Trail for charity
I know this isn’t related to creative writing but I’m heading to Peru in August and will be hiking the Inca Trail. It’ll be a challenge for me so I’ve decided to do it for charity! My charity of choice is a UK one, Macmillan Cancer Support, and my company npower will match all donations up to a total of £1,000 so your donation will go much further to help people.
If you’d like to donate, please pop over to my Justgiving page http://www.justgiving.com/paulnattress. Thanks for your support!
