Zoe Winters did a great post today about how this new world of indie publishing seems like a gold rush, and some people are treating indie publishing as a gold rush that will pan out, but it’s not.
This is a change in an industry that normally moves very slowly. Sure, things are moving quickly now (for publishing), and some companies will not survive and new ones will grow into the picture, but reading and writing and selling writing will not vanish from the planet.
So I agree with Zoe. Slow down and do what’s right for you. Get out of the “I’m in a hurry” mode. The readers will still be there if you write the good books. And I agree with her last statement about not giving your stuff away, but you all know that.
Worth the read.
