Self Publishing - A New Era Is Just Beginning

By Author: Steve Smith

There is huge crowd baying for blood. Yes I refer to all those publishers who are trying to put down Amazon. A publishing revolution is on which is shaking the very foundations of the staid old book world. There was a time not long ago, to become an author was the stuff of dreams (Or was it nightmares?). Now John Doe or Plain Jane could sit down and write a book over the weekend and get it published! And they can hit it off with the readers if they have something valuable to say or narrate the same centuries old story that we have all read in a different angle, with a different twist.I really like to read the old tales in their new avatar in the modern context. That's really the freedom of expression. Do you now understand why Facebook and Twitter are such a hit? Because everyone has an opportunity to speak and say what they want to say and there is willing audience to listen.
Amazon Kindle books have caught the imagination of the people and today's communication revolution has been waiting for just such a development in the reading habits. If we go with the views of the traditional publishers, how is it that there is such a huge sales happening over at the Kindle? How is it that Kindle electronic books have even overtaken the physical books? I even read some research reports which says there is a surge in the reading habits of the young. Is that a positive development?
In this context I loved the speech of Neil Gaiman reacting to the traditional publishers he said "When the rules are gone you can make up your own rules. You can fail, you can fail more interestingly, you can try things, and you can succeed in ways nobody would have thought of, because you're pushing through a door marked no entrance, you're walking in through it."
Speaking of Amazon, they have opened the doors for ordinary people like you and me to enter the cloistered portals of the literati. We can now dare to dream of becoming writers, say and share what we feel must be said in our own ways. If I go by my own experience, people love the knowledge, the information in the common man's language of everyday experience. When I too read many of the kindle books, I love and identify with the language of the ordinary. I appreciate the wisdom though it may not be said in perfect English and many a time even grammatically incorrect English. I don't want grammar which I cannot understand. I want all the knowledge which I can easily understand and digest.
As Gaiman says, the only real prediction is its all changing.
