For those of you out there looking for your life after your successful stint in a rock band, you’d do worse than heeding the advice of Johnny Temple, member of the band Girls Against Boys and founder of Akashic Books. In a three part series with mediabistro’s Media Beat, Temple sits down with Jason Boog, editor of GalleyCat, to discuss the history of Akashic, the advantages of coming to the book world with a music background, and why Akashic authors have to be good people (not just good authors) in order to be published by the independent press.
