|Are book publishers going the way
of the wagon wheel maker? Depends
on what they do next.
While traditional publishing may be a part of my overall game plan, that doesn’t mean I don’t find it amazing, bizarre, and generally ridiculous to watch as they try to hang on to a business model that is so obviously going the way of the wagon wheel maker. Transportation didn’t die out; it just changed. And those in the wagon wheel making industry had to change too. Same with the publishing world. Books aren’t dying out; they are just changing. I hope to do business with publishers who understand this, while maintaining my own indie books as well.
