I wanted to share links to two blogs I follow and get your thoughts on the matter.
I personally feel that a fundamental shift is occurring in the publishing industry. I don’t think bookstores are all going to disappear. I don’t think traditional publishers are going to disappear either. And if we choose other publication venues, we will still need editors and typesetters and designers to make a book the very best it can be.
But I do feel that we are at the edge of a storm which is gathering strength, one which will empower authors like never before. Not the kind of storm which destroys, but the kind of storm which brings much needed moisture and cool air, enabling crops to grow. As long as the industry adapts, this will be good for everybody, especially authors.
I look forward to you sharing your thoughts.
