My Own ePublishing Rant
Electronic publishing is the future! Embrace e-publishing! Paper is dead! You publishers are idiots, ignoring this new market!
But . . .
The problem with epublishing, one that neither of these people has addressed, is quite simple–NO ONE WANTS TO READ THE STUFF.
Okay, “no one” is a slight exaggeration, obviously. Electronic erotic romance (say that three times fast) is thriving. Some authors of my acquaintance are poised to make a major move into e-publishing their own work because they’re pretty sure they have the e-readership. So someone out there is buying and reading. However, such readers make up only a teeny-tiny percentage of the market. Why should this be?
