As I labor away on my latest projects, I take the time to mention something about ebooks.
So far, the ebook deal seems to be a good one for publishing in general. I still prefer real books and I will continue to almost exclusively buy paper books from most publishers. I shudder to think of a world without bookstores.
I will, however, buy some ebooks from small presses. I've landed some really good books from small press publishers in ebook format and have enjoyed most of those books immensely.
I continue to boycott all self-published books. I have yet to read a self-published novel that wasn't a piece of shit. I will not buy any more of those damned things and I will not download any more free self-published stinkers.
Face it. If you can't find even a small press publisher who likes your work, then you really aren't producing anything worth reading. You losers are all a bunch of pimples on the ass of commerce. Stop it, please. I'm still hoping to see you all back on the unemployment lines looking for work again at the earliest opportunity. The fad is, I hope, fading away and we will soon see this all as a very bad chapter in the history of publishing.
