A while back, an author I know posted a link to an article saying that the future of print books is actually a lot less dim than had been predicted (http://mentalfloss.com/article/85655/readers-still-prefer-physical-books-digital). I was glad to read that perspective because I am one of those holdouts – someone who loves to hold a book. (Ha ha.)
That’s my feelings as reader, anyway. As an author, I have my doubts. Most of my sales are from e-books. Sure, I sell print copies, but nowhere near proportionately to my ebook sales. From speaking with the many authors I know, I am not alone in this sales reality.
I’d love the market to change. Even if just a little. At least I’m doing my bit to help books stay in print. I’ve just got one more e-book formatted for print—DESIRE IN THE ARCTIC. The timing is great, ARCTIC had recently been made a finalist in the Las Vegas Romance Writers’ 2016 “I Heart Indie” contest.
I’ll be curious to see how DESIRE IN THE ARCTIC does with print sales. I hope well. Of course I will benefit, but so will printmakers, shippers, and good ‘ol fashioned readers. Like myself.
Yea for print! I’m so glad ARCTIC won’t leave me feeling chilled.
Do you prefer your books in print or e-format? I’d love to hear your opinion!
