Small publisher power

3 July 2006

'It's possible to punch above your size and weight and get the kind of coverage much larger houses receive. I do think that the shifting dynamics of the trade are in our favour. The conglomerates are focusing with tremendous vigour on doing fewer books, and doing them with more power - and that allows smaller publishers to pick up on those projects that aren't being housed in the way they would have been five to ten years ago.'
