encouraging words on publishing: Peter Gethers

Peter Gethers is featured in a Vanity Fair interview in connection with the release of his novel ASK BOB  [about a pet doctor’s professional and personal life]. On publishing, Gethers comments: "If I were 21, I would so jump into publishing right now. I think the future is going to be all interconnected, and I think publishing will morph into something, frankly, like what I’m trying to do. People will be allowed and encouraged to be more entrepreneurial, and you’ll be encouraged to work in things you’re interested in. Books still have so much value in and of themselves, but also value as a way to launch not just thoughts and substance but brands and products . . . a cookbook can lead to a food show . . . to a YouTube channel, a blog with a fan base. So many areas in which to expand, but a whole different way of thinking."
