The advent of e-readers has been a blessing from the Almighty God for independent author. All those ideas in our head now won’t have to go through the slush pile and we won’t have to wait a month for a rejection letter. We can publish as soon as we’re finished writing our opus. This has motivated some indie authors to chuck print media altogether. However, that may not be the best idea right now or in the near future.
Never was there a time in publishing history where independent publishing was such a viable business model for authors. We now have the power to take total control of our work, from the writing to the editing to the cover design to the marketing. It’s all right at our fingertips. But how is that translating in terms of cash? Moola? Lettuce? Scrilla? Greenbacks? Is anyone out there making any money? What are the numbers saying?
