Having released my first ebook on Smashwords and Amazon, i owe a lot to both those platforms for creating a level playing field for writers like me.
Smashwords’ Annual Review is an interesting read on their take of how, in the world of publishing, there is a shift in power from the publishers to the writers.
does that mean that suddenly there is a pot of gold at the end of each writer’s rainbow?
hardly. self publishing remains a tough business and writing a good story is just one part of the journey. getting the story out to a wide audience, making the audience aware of the story is the much harder part of the journey.
my journey began on the 12th of December 2012. i will keep my blog updated on how that journey shapes up.
a happy new year to all.
