Climbing the Publishing Ladder: Korea’s alternative

The dedicated writer will spend hours at her cafe spot trying to create the perfect story for her beloved fans:

"No! David doesn't love Michelle! Where do these fans get these ideas?"

“I just published my ebook yesterday! How did they write these fanfics so quickly!?”

However, the publisher sits on his throne and decides the fate of your book, regardless of your fans, your dedication, your story.

"I am not pleased with this installment."

“3 installments? Make it 8. Not including Novellas between books.”

In the first segment of Climbing the Publishing Ladder, it was heavily focused on the nature of the e-book industry and concerns over the printed market. There’s also the question of leftover book stock.

Think Toy Story 3, but with books. And they don’t make it out of….You know.

So how to solve this problem?

Provide readers with a delicious cup of coffee for their body and that little extra something for their Seoul.

Publishers in Korea have opened up reading cafes to sell leftover stock at a discounted price. A better alternative to destroying all those books. These cafes have also become a great place to hold literary events and political events.

Despite the changes in the publishing market and several speculations about what will happen to printed books, Korea has provided an alternative. Just as musicians can make money through digital music and tours, perhaps, printed books can do something similar: Create an amazing reading experience. A physical space for writers, readers and anyone else to meet in person.
