Haute Living in Haute Water
It seems the publishers of Haute Living Magazine are creating news of their own–alledgedly, they aren’t paying their writers for stories they publish.
Magazine writing is a tough business; for a typical publication, ad sales barely cover the cost of the glossy paper they’re printed on. Magazines like Ocean Drive pay for themselves by replacing articles with ads, or “advertorials,” paid for by companies to appear as they are regular articles about their products.
So it comes as little surprise that a small, independent publishing company–without much of an identity (what is the point of Haute Living, anyway? New York and Miami luxury lifestyles? What is that, exactly?…)–would be suffering from money problems. That is, if it is in fact the truth. Read the controversy over Haute Living here.
