The Global Babbler, a blogger website in Cincinnati Ohio, is about free speech. We
welcome anyone interested in voicing their opinion about anything which interest
them in addition to joining and contributing your own articles or leaving a comment
in the commentary box.
We would indeed like to hear from A&R artists, songwriters, novelists, screenwriters,
how-to writers, horror writers, poets, literary agents, educators, scientists, almost
anyone who is associated in some way with writing or academics, whether a professional
or layman makes no difference. Your opinion is highly welcomed.
Those who pitch their songs online to recording artists are encouraged to write a
commentary about up-to-date changes in the songwriting & recording industry. Moreover
we look forward to experienced novelists who can share advice with those who seek
qualitative information on the subject of writing. In addition to this, politics,
economics, foreign affairs, women’s issues, human rights, the global environment,
alternative energy, are also issues which are covered by the First Amendment of the
U.S. Constitution, and are open for discussion at the forum or in a blog, because
it is the First and Second Amendment upon which this website takes its stance.
As for the administrator and owner, I am a professional songwriter and member of
BMI, in addition to being a self published novelist.
One of the major changes in the twenty-first century for writers is publishing online.
Such online stores as Amazon.com, Alibris.com, Barnes & Noble.com, can make potential
novice-writer's chances, greater and even more competitive, since these online retail
bookstores reach a huge customer base all over the world. But keep in mind, as a
novice, getting rich is not the main objective. Meaning self publishing is a very
corrupt, competitive business and not for the get-rich-quick seeker.
On the other hand standard brick & mortar publishing houses are still a viable resource
for authors even in 2014, moreover these publishing houses are slowly upgrading their
methologies to be more competitive with online retailers like amazon or alibris by
going online themselves to compete.
This means the old ways of publishing nevertheless are now taking a back seat to
the power of the Internet and so the brick & mortal publishing houses must get fully
involved with the self publishing business or get out altogether. Moreover this definitely
means overseas markets are up for grabs.
