BOOK WARS: RISE OF EVERYONE
You've seen a lot on the changes in publishing occurring in this blog, every few days, if not more often, there's talk about e-readers, e-books, Print on Demand, etc. I could sum this up in many ways (including "oh, gods make it stop, it's confusing), but to put it simply:
- There are more ways to get text to people.
- Everyone wants a piece of that market.
- This means new ways to deliver content and consume it.
Now, this basically means people can read more and authors can get their stuff out easier. I have several books in the works and am pretty sure most if not all will start as Print On Demand with e-book options. I see no reason not to embrace the new technology.
There's another side to this that often gets missed. Yes, more ways to get more books in more formats. We can guess that, we've heard about it, we know it's a given.
