Writers Coffee Shop Publisher
Coffee Shop was created in September 2009 by a group of acquaintances who share a single goal: to create an entertaining literary experience. Initially the site was set up to provide messages and information about what was going on in the fellowship, but it was growing rapidly as there was a need for a welcoming, uncomplicated setting in which to publish and tell fans' fictions or inventive story.

Considering a more equitable proportion of publishing revenues, Philip Pullman demands volumes.
Philippe Pullman has asked publishing houses to stop harming "the ecological nature of the publishing world" and to give authors a more just part of the profits their works have made. Talking in his role as chairman of the Society of Authors, the author's dark materials beat out at the fact that as profits in publishing rise, the cash authors are going downhill.
Pullman's commentary came in an essay for Society of Authors bookseller magazine's CEO Nicola Solomon, in which Solomon described how large publishing houses like Simon & Schuster and Penguin Random House report a margin of around 16%, while authors - who according to a study by the 2016 survey by the EU based on a yearly salary of only £12,500 - calculate to take home around 3% of publishing revenues in 2016.
"After all of them were sold at the publishing house, the publisher stockholders got up to three time as much as the authors. The authors still had to buy their own editions and agents," Solomon said, admitting that "publishers can challenge these numbers.... we can't split these numbers between publishing houses because they don't release the percentage of authors".
Deciding to become an writer often means foregoing the certainty of a secure workplace. Authors' Association has formulated a number of issues for publishing houses and asked them "to undertake to pay authors a higher percentage of sales"; to be more open about how authors, illuminators and interpreters are remunerated; and "to make use of a larger community, not only of prominent people, but of authors from all over society".
"But if authors do not get a reasonable return on their investment, the range of good work on offer will invariably decline. Becoming an writer often means avoiding the certainty of a secure job," Solomon added, and warned that "new and varied voices" will not be listened to if authors are no longer remunerated. On Monday, Stephen Lotinga, CEO of the Publishing Association, said that "publishers fully acknowledge that authors should be properly rewardsed for their work and that they make a great contribution to promoting talent".
