Around the Web: Women Writers and Independent Bookstore Day

Hello again CDP readers! From my desk, it appears we're finally breaking out of the clutches of winter, so I hope you've all got some pleasant plans for the weekend. If reading is on your to do list, here's a few of the things we found around the web this week. The Pay Gap Exists in Publishing Too Remember how all the Bronte sisters wrote using male pseudonyms? I’d like to think the days of women needing to use male names to be taken seriously and to sell their work are past us, but recent research suggests women writers are still earning less than their male counterparts. The study, published on PLOS One, looked at more than two million books published between 2002 and 2012 in North America

Around the Web: The Awesome Debate, Poetry, Books, and Reading

Welcome back book friends! We’re pretty busy gearing up for the release of The Boatman at the end of the month (April 30th, to be exact), but that doesn’t mean we aren’t sneaking time to check book twitter and browse the web.

When was the last time you perused the New York Times Best Seller list? If you’re a writer with intentions of taking your craft to the career level (or even just the next level), I sincerely hope your answer is “Five minutes ago.” Okay, I’m being a tad tongue-in-cheek, but the sentiment holds true: so-called “professional” writers should consistently familiarize themselves with every book that’s selling like hotcakes. And I’m not even talking about reading them—although that wouldn’t be such a bad idea if you’re writing in a simila

Around the Web: Bedside Books, Women Writers, and Library Week in America

Welcome back everyone! Here's what's new around the web this week. Bedside Books Imagine, you're reading a book while on a trip and you notice there's only a few pages left. You're excited to find out how the plot wraps up, but behind that excitement, there's a certain discomfort - the kind that comes from knowing once you close that book, you don't have anything left to read. Disaster, am I right? Well, according to Forbes, there's a new program in the works to make running out of books while travelling a thing of the past. Bedside Reading is a marketing program that aims to promote books by placing them in hotel rooms, where guests can pick them up at their leisure and take them when they
