The Future is Bright for Writers
Look to Amazon if you want to know the future for books and writers. See the new Kindles they're coming out with in time for Christmas. See how their ad shows it in a teen-age girl's back pocket. See how they make it affordable as stocking gifts for your kids. See how they realize the Kindle has a whole new market of readers to find-- children and teenagers.
As e-readers get cheaper and more diverse, people will have several. I have a Kindle, but I'd like an iPad too. Why not a Nook? And kids will have them.
More people than ever will be looking for books to read on their new readers. So, writers, get busy writing their books!
I've been kicking myself to write more. Soon I'll go from one book to three that are available as ebooks. I have another novel in the works that I hope can be ready for March release. I think I can get another one done and into editing for next October release.
My goal is to have five books with my name on them available by next Christmas. Right now I have one. Pathetic, I know, but I have goals.
It's time to buckle down and get writing. We determine our own futures. If we don't write the books, then life goes on without our names on the titles.
