P Is For Publishing Era



It's been remarkable watching publishing evolve into what it is now. Five years ago self publishing was like a curse to writers; a doomed choice to those unlucky or talentless few to kill their dreams; now it's a thriving segment of publishing that has the potential to overcome the traditional route.

With the advent of ebooks and the various devices to read them (Kindle, Nook and IPad), writers have a wide range of choices to get their work out there. And now you can find success through fanfiction as well. Thanks to the acclaim of Fifty Shades of Grey.

It's a great time to be a writer.  Don't you agree?

I hadn't heard of Fifty Shades of Grey until I read your post, and honestly I'm in shock!

I'm blown away by how the publishing industry is changing.

It's exciting, and really opens up the publication world to so many people.

Is Fifty Shades of Grey a self-published book?

T.D. McFrost said...

I think so. Considering it started as fan fiction and ballooned into a hit.

I have seen so many changes in publishing it shocks me daily. I never thought I would attempt to pub anything without a publisher, but I did and I liked it more than I thought I would.
