BEST SELLING FANTASY AUTHOR TURNS HIS BACK ON CORPORATE PUBLISHERS: Phoenix Ark MD and established author David Clement-Davies says “It’s time the true value of story, grounded in the protection and nurturing of talented writers, is brought to the forefront in publishing once again. In my experience publishers are too political, hide their strategies far too much from their authors, and follow quick sales, above building talent and finding quality. Publishing is fracturing everywhere, and though keeping an eye on outlets, publishers need to return to the authority of the word, and of the author. Essentially to get right back to basics, with a smaller scale vision that cares both about people, and the tremendous power of story.” Phoenix Ark are building their strategy in the public eye, and creating a talented community in London, who can also agent for each other.
