This blog post by Mark Coker, of Smashwords fame, is just too good not to repost. I love his macro take on what is happening and will happen in the publishing world. I don’t agree with every statement, but no one can disagree with the fact that Mark is a SUPERB source of info regarding self-publishing. He’s been on the front lines since 2007, which makes him THE elder statesman of the industry !

Here’s an interesting chart. Still wondering why bookstores are closing?? By my research the fastest growing market will be Europe. The US has been on a roll in regards to adoption of e-Readers. Growth will continue, but at a less robust rate. This, in my humble opinion, bodes well for those that create quality content for e-Readers. People love their books and enjoy good stories.
Consumers have spoken with a voice that is loud and clear – e-Readers are a better delivery device for books. Not surprisingly, the projected growth of eBooks sales correlates rather closely to the growth in
e-Readers (see bottom paragraph). ** Please note that this is a VERY VERY unscientific assessment from a true newbie to the industry. Take all comments with a grain of salt and a tequila shot, followed by a lemon wedge.
