The inimitable Richard Nash spilled a few of the beans behind his current venture, Cursor, in an interview with the UK publication The Literary Platform.
So let me say here: each community is also a publishing imprint, one that will publish one to two books a month. So, for Red Lemonade, the first community/imprint based on the Cursor platform, each of these books will be published digitallyâ€”both in the cloud, and as a downloadâ€”and mechanically, as a limited edition and as a trade paperback original, this trade edition being distributed in the conventional manner by leading distributors around the world (details of authors, distributors, etc., to be announced at Book Expo America) and all editions being promoted with galleys, co-op, review copies, hustling, moxie, and my own brand of pimpin’ and hoin’.
Still, one can’t help but have more questions, or be intrigued. Nash says he’ll say more at BEA.
