Still trying to get a grasp of the London Book Fair by searching blogs.
This sounds all too likely. US publishers a bit ahead of London.
The problem likely derives from a lack of concrete data that supports spurs enthusiasm and, more importantly, decision making at the highest levels of publishing.
In other words they will wait till there are more figures on actual USA sales. Or maybe wait till there are actual figures on UK sales.
I wonder what the agents make of it all?
No sign of Scribd in London. It is taking a long time for them to offer revenue outside the USA. A couple of years ago there was quite a lot of rudeness about piracy and so on when they did attend the London Book Fair. Maybe there should be some special invite to encourage them back.
