Authors are scratching their heads about the future of printed books and venting their frustrations about traditional publishers. “I know my book is good, but how can I get it published?”
Others are casting aside any dreams of traditional print books and are hopefully riding on the wave of EBooks. Electronic books seem to be the future of reading, but will our society forget what it feels like to hold a book in one’s hand?
Perhaps indicating the future of publishing, Janalyn Voigt can be increasingly seen as an example of an insightful blogger defining what the future of reading will be. Her take? Media books will appear. Face it; our society is addicted to the screen.
On the other hand, writer/producer/actor Gregor Collins speaks out about his unwillingness to give up on traditional publishing. He has a great book written and the guts to keep marketing it to publishers. His point? No one appreciated Van Gogh or Emily Dickinson in their lifetimes.
“Do not quit," he says, "before the world opens its eyes.”
