comment Why can't I write something longer than a few pages?
Awesome. Only thing I'll add is: Expect to suck in the beginning, but finish everything all the same. Finish means, good enough to send to a publisher. You can't learn unless you go through these beginner pains

comment Can Anybody Write an “Unauthorized” Guide?
The case was a victory from a fair use, as the Rowling's original claim was that no one could create anything based on the HP universe without her permission. The Lexicon authors lost because they had gone too far, not because of fair use, which I believe was your question.

comment Where do I fit in the future of publishing?
You need to rewrite the question: What degree you have, what interests you have, what sort of job you want. That's it. as it is, I can't make head or tails of your question

@JaveerBaker it is recommended, as many people still prefer print books. Creating a print book isn't that hard, and I suggest you do it

Janine, can you please make this clear: Are they offering you a print contract? What does "print Ebook" mean? Or should it have been "print, eBook and audio" ? :)
