Joe Konrath http://jakonrath.blogspot.com/ is all about e-books and the opportunities they give newbie writers – or writers who haven’t found the success they feel they deserve. His blog is truly inspirational and every time I read it I can hear one of those voices in my mind chanting ‘do it, do it’. It’s really exciting to think you could have your work available to the public that easily.
But I really, really want to see this on the book shelves and e-books are only about 3-5% of the entire book reading market… though that said it is a large market so 3-5% is a lot of people.
So it leaves me feeling a little torn. Am I wasting my time seeking a literary agent and a publisher? Should I take the plunge and go the e-book way?
At the moment I can’t help but hesitate. BirthRight is exceptionally precious to me and I really would like it to reach as many as possible.
So I will continue to seek representation – at the moment.
