Self-publishing and eBooks Gaining Ground

Last week former Star Wars author Michael A. Stackpole did a series of blog posts highlighting the current state of affairs with the publishing industry. In those articles Mr. Stackpole talked about the new age of eBooks and self-publishing, and how these two trends are on the rise. It seams that this idea is spreading…

Star Wars author Paul S. Kemp stated in his blog yesterday that he plans to start taking self-publishing and eBooks more seriously. You may have noticed on his Twitter feed that Mr. Kemp was looking for a cover artist a while back. In yesterday’s blog he revealed the new cover art for his eBook Ephemera, a collection of short stories. Furthermore Mr. Kemp revealed that his next eBook, entitled Azazel (a supernatural thriller), will also be self-published.

Regardless, we will still be seeing traditionally published books by Mr. Kemp (such as Riptide and Godborn) so there’s no radical changes to concern readers. Yet it is interesting to see the trend expanding. Will more and more authors take advantage of eBooks and self-publishing?

One thing’s for certain, now is as good a time as any to go and buy an eBook reader.

  1. I really hate the idea of giving up books. They have been my constant companion for lo these many decades I have spent spinning in circles on this little blue marble but for the greater good I think I need to make the switch to an e-reader. I think the decision is made to get one. I just want a freaking extremely cool one now with all the bells and whistles. It will be interesting to see if I find the self published stuff useful or if there are editors and publishers for a very good reason.
