See a Problem?
I actually find it quite intimidating at times to observe how everyone else seem so much more in control of things than I am, that they know more about most things than I do, and how they certainly seem to be achieving so much more than me on a regular basis. Even the seagulls were having a party outside my house tonight. This is the age of technology and information after all and I, for one, am mopping it all up like a greedy sponge. But should I be closing down my Macbook and enjoying the blissful delight of putting my feet up instead? When I took an extra long holiday away from it all with my family where there were no computers or Internet, I did find that my brain de-cluttered and the lists no longer seemed that important, but that only lasted for as long as the holiday and as soon as I returned everything seemed more urgent and desperate than before.
If we want to write and publish a book, we can… if we want to set up a website, we can… if we want to earn a living from home, we can… if we want to win awards, we can.back2test.barrica94.cl/duwak-d5100-nikon.php
Everything is within our grasp. Now Google can show us ALL how, and none of it costs as much as it used to. So it seems in this modern world we can literally do anything. The only restrictions are our imaginations. There is no doubt that this is an exciting, liberating and wonderful, if just a little bit frustrating, daunting and exhausting, time for us all. A time that will enable us to realise our dreams, no matter how big they are, and no matter how many lists they generate.
Gone are the days when self-publishing was considered to be just for the vain. JK Rowling has proved this recently with her huge step into the independent authors market with her work soon to be self-published as eBooks. Has anyone else heard of Pottermore? As soon as JK did this she showed that even established writers now want a piece of the self-publishing pie. So not only does it provide authors with a flexible and lucrative business, it also gives a more exciting range of books to the reader as it allows new authors through the door who, because of commercial reasons, may not have been picked up by publishers before.
We are clearly in the middle of yet another consumer and technological evolution… and a VERY exciting time for writers. The amazing thing about eBooks is readers can browse, download, read and review many different types of books while on their lunch break, riding the bus home, warming the baby milk, taking out the trash or cooking tea. They even come in handy when the kids are ill, they need a new bedtime book or the summer holidays are approaching. This new crowd of eBook readers also actively seeks independent authors out because their writing is less traditional and much cheaper than the big names, allowing them to fill up their libraries for their annual holidays, lunch breaks, school trips or new ventures, for a fraction of the cost.
Niche writers will also be able to release their books to an audience that may not have got the opportunity to read them before this digital new world. This type of writing may only sell a few thousand eBooks so publishers would never have taken them on before.
