Both Derek Haines and I urge all authors whether traditional or Indie to make the time to read the attached highly informative article. Whether we realize it or not, we’re all affected by what is currently going on behind the publishing industry’s closed doors!!!
For weeks now not only myself but many other Indie authors have noticed a total lack of sales when it comes to ebooks and the number of pages read. Its bad enough that sites like bookBub are telling people how to get ebooks for nothing. But what you are about to read is a far more serious threat to every author…
DO NOT SIMPLY BURY YOUR HEADS IN THE SAND, HOPING THAT WHATS HAPPENING IS AN ABERRATION AND THAT YOUR PUBLISHER WILL GO BACK TO TREATING US FAIRLY WITH THE RESPECT WE KNOW WE DESERVE. THIS IS REALITY PEOPLE. THIS IS WHATS GOING ON RIGHT NOW. READ IT FOR THE SAKE OF ALL THE HARD WORK YOU PUT INTO YOUR BOOKS, BOTH PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE!!!
Having read it through more than once, I defy any of you to name another industry that thinks it can continue without its product suppliers, in this instance, its authors?
The following article in the publication Author Earnings goes a long way to explaining why all authors are being sidelined on the quiet, all in the name of corporate profit!
