Blogging Insights — New Format # 32 — The Internet

“The Internet destroyed most of the barriers to publication. The cost of being a publisher dropped to almost zero with two interesting immediate results: anybody can publish, and more importantly, you can publish whatever you want.”

(Dick Costolo)

I guess I agree and disagree.
I think that the internet opened barriers to publication because now you can find publishers who are looking for specific things.
On the other hand, people don’t need to go buy books to have things to read. If you find something you want to read there is a good chance you can find it somewhere free to download on the computer. I do listen to audiobooks but I believe most come in a book format. Some that are published “just for audible” may not be.
I have four children’s books that were published. I could not afford to renew the contract with the publisher I was using. I would love to get picked up by a big publisher but the chances are so slim. It is not very encouraging as a writer.

    1. It is and it is very discouraging. I think you need to know someone on the inside to ever think of actually having a book in a book store! Children’s books…forget it. The market is supposedly really picky but one day I had gone to the library, at the suggestion of a professor, to see “what was being published for children”. There was so many stupid kids books and I hate to be like that but I couldn’t understand how they got published and I couldn’t. It is truly amazing.
