Things are definitely changing fast. With some authors already making a major splash with e-publishing, this week came news that bestselling novelist Barry Eisler passed up a $500,000 book deal from a major publisher in order to wade into the self-publishing waters.
E-books are become more and more a part of the landscape, though how quickly they become more than 50% remains to be seen.
My question for you this Wednesday: What do you think the publishing landscape will look like in five years? Will e-books have taken over? Will publishers be struggling or thriving? Do you think the future for books looks bright or bleak?
In 2016, how will things look for publishers, agents, bookstores, and, oh yes, authors and readers?
