"Print is dead" - Dr Egon Spengler, 1984
I'm a writer.
I used to want to be a published writer, in the traditional sense, i.e. to sell my stories to a publishing company, who would then print them out and sell them in bookstores. Y'know, a real writer.
I'd thought about putting something on the web, or an e-book, something that used 21st century technology…
...but the joke was on me. I was thinking about that as a way to get the attention of someone who would print my books the old fashioned way.
Then I read an excellent dialog by Barry Eisler and J.A. Konrath about e-publishing. I like Barry Eisler, I've read his (actual, physical, formerly dead tree) books, so the fact that he was moving to (self) e-publishing gave me pause for thought.
