I am a big believer in the fact that all authors really write only one book.
As many have noted, the peril for authors is that our work space is too easily our play space.
Guy Gavriel Kay
Amazon can't be all good or all bad. I don't think that everything they do is evil; they've given a lot of authors access.
Barnes & Noble is able to publish price-reduced non-copyrighted works not so much because it saves the 10 percent to 15 percent of revenue that would go to the gruel-eating authors, but because it saves the 50 percent that would go to the publishers.
When I moved from Cambridge, I donated all my fiction. I carefully cut out pages the authors had autographed for me. I didn't want those autographed books showing up on eBay.
Composers, like authors, have a lot in common. Our main goal is to connect with the listener emotionally.
Try to meet as many authors, agents, and editors as you can.
Walter Jon Williams
Children's authors don't talk down or patronise their younger readers.
I think authors can get into trouble viewing the subject matter as their turf.
Authors have odd relationships with their creations They owe their fame and fortune to their characters but feel enslaved by them.
When authors who write literary fiction begin to write screenplays, everybody assumes that's the end. Here's another who's never going to write well again.
Though by whim, envy, or resentment led, they damn those authors whom they never read.
I read reviews and consider myself pretty 'plugged in' to the literary cosmos, yet one of the things I love best about book-touring is the opportunity to compare notes with favorite booksellers around the country. I always come home with books by authors I'd never heard of - or books I've read about but didn't realize I might love.
Authors of books are not given very much control over the films that are made from their books.
Chris Van Allsburg
I like reading a lot. Jeffrey Archer and Robert Ludlum are my favourite authors. I love making realistic cinema, so I read non-fiction more.
Too many trees are killed to print the words of people who may not have all that much to say, and authors and journalists are equally culpable in this regard.
Any debut novel is usually a case of spitting into the wind - or, just maybe, casting your bread upon the waters. Without an established audience in place, first-time authors have to hope for resonant word of mouth and a receptive reviewer or three.
Paul Di Filippo
I suspect that authors who start their careers writing for an adult audience - and who eventually produce a young adult novel or two - are more common than authors who begin by writing for young adults and who then gravitate toward composing something for an adult audience.
Paul Di Filippo
I have a private press. I'm a book artist. I publish books of other authors and artists. I do the illustrating. I set the type. I print it myself on my press. I do everything but bind it.
I would like to champion diverse forms like graphic novels and works told in verse and diverse writers and illustrators and diverse authors as well.
I sometimes read about authors who say they require a perfectly silent room maintained at precisely 68 degrees, with trash bags taped over the windows and a white-noise machine in the corner to write, and I think, 'Who are these people, and do any of them have kids?'
Of the authors published under Ballantine's Adult Fantasy logo, only Evangeline Walton 'spoke' to me.
Stephen R. Donaldson
To some extent, all authors are a little schizophrenic. We lead most of our lives in solitary confinement, living and breathing the books that we're writing.
Pushing the boundaries of polite society does not just fall under the purview of crime fiction authors.
The manufacture and running of all the world's computers, the toxicity of the hardware mountains that we currently dump on other countries; all this can be totted up on the environmental account of web-users and its authors.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
William Arthur Ward
