I take more chances with self published authors due to the price. 500 page books for under $4 is awesome.

I shudder to think of the bad books that will oversaturate the market when publishers get lazer focused on these books. But to each his own. It won’t be any money out of my pocket, because I won’t buy them. Not that I’m a prude as I’ve read many over the years, but too many times it seems the sex scenes have turned into filler for books IMO.

I am also finding that I read very few paranormals now. I just got tired of them.

I am curious if there was any scoop/talk about dystopian and apocalptic books. Therein lies a true trend IMO. I see more and more of them every day it seems. I like them too, because they truly are different from the norm.

I’m elated to hear that more authors are taking their fates into their own hands because some of the best things I have read recently have been self-pubslished or from very small publishing houses I had never heard of. Also pleased to hear that erotic romance is picking up some steam while paranorms are losing some. I believe the great paranorm writers (Singh, Ward, etc.) will survive because they are great writers and it stands to reason that only those with really great world-building and a desire to write in that trend beyond the fact that everyone is doing vampires will be able to sell as much as they ever did.

And while I haven’t read a lot from Stephanie Laurens – the last article I did read she seemed very much pro-publishing houses.

Sounds like fun times. Thanks for the update.
