The internet is great, don’t get me wrong, but sometimes the information streamed across the pages or websites can be very misleading, or lacking important facts, making us believe something only half-uncovered.
Case in point. Just yesterday I read via Facebook an article about the decline of ebooks, and the rise in paperbacks. I don’t know why I got excited. Perhaps I was hopeful that once again people would have to walk into a store and buy a book, which I have always considered the best marketing for an author and their work. (Example: Diana Gabaldon – The Outlander book series, and J.K. Rowling – The Harry Potter series). Otherwise, us indie authors get lost in the shuffle and are seldom noticed if we don’t nearly give our books away for a deep discount/free.
Anyway, today I see this article, and since it is explained well in dollars and cents, I now understand the topic entirely. Still, I don’t know what to wish for to happen to help indie authors get noticed.
