Miller Rolls The Dice on Publisher Risk

The below video of Bob Miller of Workman Publishing Group addressing delegates at last month’s BookNet Canada Technology Forum came this evening via Jason Boog of GalleyCat on Mediabistro. The video from Blip TV may only have recently become available.
Miller, former publisher at HarperStudio, looks at the process of ‘risk assessment’ for publishers acquiring a manuscript and goes into some of HarperStudio’s model of publishing. Fascinating stuff, and there really is a lot in here to comment on, but my head is not in that kind of place today. So, in the meantime, watch, enjoy, be electrified, exasperated or whatever takes your fancy from where Miller is positioned in the ballpark of publishing. In the coming days, I will do an article on the subjects raised here. I have just to think of something to go with ‘Be Damned’ – Maybe, ‘Miller Be Damned!’. Only joking Bob.
