I can see why Amanda Hocking says she loves book bloggers. It’s quite the difference from the years of slush pile attitudes that writers have had to endure over the years. It’s refreshing.
A well-known author was recently quoted as saying that the American public doesn’t read anymore. She based this on New York publishers reporting financial difficulties.
But she’s wrong. People haven’t given up reading. They just do it differently now. They’ve found indie authors, cheaper books, and e-readers. And they’ve discovered a bigger, better banquet.
