The book is dead

The book is dead!

Long live the book!

In other words, kiddos, there's been yet another high profile story on why publishing is a dying industry, focusing on the multi-million dollar deals that don't pan out. Sure, it's hard. But guess what? We midlist authors keep on publishing. So if you all will just keep on reading, I think we'll be okay.

It's hard to type with a kitty napping on my chest. :-) But here I go!

I will keep reading. My husband jokes sometimes that I am single-handedly supporting the publishing industry with the amount of books I buy.

You and me both, Wendy. I read (and buy) way faster than I write!

don't wake that kitty.
