The publishing world is changing at a pace that can only be compared to the world of technology. Because, as technology changes, so does the world of publishing. E-Readers and iPhones have changed the face of how we read and how we write. These days, if you're rejected by a publisher, you can just as easily self-publish online, and turn your novel into an e-book. The only tricky part about self-publishing, is that it's hard to gain visibility. But trust me, there are definitely self-published books you won't find at a book store, but deserve your attention ASAP.
The amazing range that self-published books provide can be hard to navigate, but thanks to sites like Indie Reader and Goodreads, the world of books becomes slightly less daunting. Whether you're into a general genre like historical fiction, or you've got more singular tastes, like wild folklore based fantasy set in modern times... there's a self-published book out there for you! So kick back, grab your e-reader, or your laptop, and get ready to click through on a buying frenzy.
