The Horrible Truth About Book Publishing

Kirk Tuck brings up the horrible truth about book publishing:

I love the book and the thoughts in it but someone at the publisher’s office took a big ass pin and stuck it in my balloon. I turned my manuscript in early but even so the book won’t make it down the chute, thru the rendering factory and thru the printing presses and into the inventory at Amazon until next Spring. A virtual lifetime when measured against the progress of digital photography. A big sigh.

And you wonder why so many authors are selling eBooks? There you go. I just hope Tuck’s book isn’t dead on arrival by the time it comes out.  The book he’s talking about, “Minimalist Lighting: Professional Techniques for Location Photography,” I just got for my birthday a couple months back.  Haven’t read it yet, though.
