Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The Buzz 1: “Self-publishing is an ever-changing industry and big changes can come seemingly out of nowhere…Trend #2: More indie authors will collaborate or consolidate in collectives. Trend #3: Authors will benefit from competition in the eBook marketplace between Amazon, Apple, and Google.” [www.writtenwordmedia.com/the-top-ten-publishing-trends-every-author-needs-to-know-in-2021] The Buzz 2: “Ten years ago, e-books made up less than 1 percent of the trade book market, yet they now make up 40 to 50 percent of units sold…In genres like fantasy, romance, and science fiction, traditional publishers have lost their former iron grip on the industry…Successful major authors are even choosing to self-publish.…As smartphone ownership expands internationally, so will the market for e-books.…As digital books move away from the traditional paper format which inspired them, books could take advantage of the capabilities of digital devices by offering color, interactivity, connectivity, share ability, and new features we can’t even imagine yet.” [https://izzardink.com/future-of-self-publishing] We’ll ask publisher Eddie Vincent, novelist Ursula Wong, ghostwriter and novelist Jeff Deck, novelist Barbara Eppich Struna, and indie writer Dale T. Phillips for their take on The Future of Self-Publishing: A Real Page-Turner – Part 2!
