Ten global publishing stories not to be missed. 10 May 2018 collation

The global publishing market has never been more exciting, and every day myriad publishing stories cross my screen that I’d love to develop here at TNPS, but there simply isn’t time.

But if you’re reading TNPS in the first place you probably share my obsession with all things international publishing, and would no doubt enjoy some of these stories.

So a regular feature of TNPS is a collation of links to some of the best publishing stories around the web that I haven’t been able to devote a full post to.

Here’s today’s collation. Full disclosure – there’s more than ten today.
