This is a terrific blog posting from writer Alisha Paige.  I find it interesting to read comments from writers who are experienced in being traditionally published AND have published themselves.  Thanks Alisha for your comments and thoughts.   I know they will be valuable to others as well.

Today I’m debunking myths within the indie world. In other words, I’ve heard some crazy rumors flying around some writing blogs and I want to get the truth out for a couple of reasons. 1) I hate how negative rumors can ruin a very good thing. 2) If I were a new writer considering indie publishing my book, I know for a fact that if I read some of the false blogs about inflated costs, I’d probably never take the risk to indie pub my books and that makes me sad. 😦

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.
