There’s a lot of writing out there.
A lot of creativity. A million untold stories. It’s never been easier to self publish. Until quiet recently, vanity publishing didn’t have the best of reputations in the publishing biz. The sweated over opus, may have found ‘life’ in a limited edition print run, circulated to family and friends. Sent to publishers to be rejected and forgotten.
There is a revolution happening in publishing. With the advent of iPads and Kindles and the phenomenal success of books such as Fifty Shades of Grey (which began it’s extraordinary life as a self published e-book), writers can now find a readership without having an ‘in’ to the publishing biz.
Sure, the big publishers aren’t going away and are each coming to grips with the e-publishing tsunami in their own way. But they are no longer the gatekeepers they once were and there is no escaping the radical change that is sweeping aside old conventions.
Some things never change. People like stories. And if you’ve got a story to tell, and the determination to tell it, e-publishing can help link you with an audience.
So, we launch this blog, and all who sail in her. Tacking into the winds of change and hopefully taking you on the journey with us!
