We thought The Book Designer’s blog had been unusually quiet recently, and Nate Hoffelder of The Digital Reader explains why.
The site was sold just before Christmas, without a public announcement.
Hoffelder isn’t sure what to expect from the new owner, though he shared a concerned quick take from Victoria Strauss of Writer Beware at The Digital Reader.

Catch up on this and other business updates, including a possible place for indies in Publishers Weekly’s new book expo and a concern about ransom reviews on Goodreads, on ALLi’s blog.
