Have you noticed the amount of ebooks now available for us to purchase today. They are so prevalent. There are so many authors going the indie route as they have more control over how their book is published, or for that matter, getting it published at all.
Twenty years ago, if you wanted to see your book in print, you had to go to one of the big New York publishers and hope, that by some small miracle, they’d publish your book. Today you can go to a place like CreateSpace and publish your book for next to nothing. Vanity presses are okay but it will cost you a hefty price most of the time to get it done. Either way, getting your book published today is now a reality for so many where they may never have been before. Even those who have been published traditionally before have started to go indie as they have more control over their own manuscript and they also then retain the rights to their book.
Ebooks are the way of the future. Will books in print ever fully go away? I don’t think so but I know that more and more books are heading toward the ebook route versus print. Personally, I never thought I’d like to read an ebook until one day when I was walking on my treadmill and found how hard it was to read a book while walking. I asked to borrow my husband Kindle Fire and that’s the day I forever fell in love with reading ebooks. How about you? Are you still an avid reader of books in print or do you prefer ebooks?
