    The power of awful (offal) first drafts

    When, over the course of a quarter-century, a writing book retains its sales and popularity, when it commonly ranks high in surveys as among the best, when it is quoted in other books, essays, and workshops on the craft — that means something.

    As executive vice president and publisher of Penguin Random House Audio, D’Acierno focuses on trends in audiobook publishing and saw a market need for shorter form content, more like the length of podcasts.
