The Death of Traditional Publishing

Posted by redeyedone on February 14, 2012 at 2:40 AM Comments comments (0)

      The golden days of the traditional publishing companies are rapidly become a thing of the past, much to the amusement and relief of many self published authors. With the rising popularity of ebooks, encouraged by the explosive growth of ereaders, tablets, and iphones, a person has the ability to carry around over ten thousand books with them. Additionally, with the growing availability of self publishers; (ie Smashwords, Kindle Direct publishing, ect.) many authors have chosen to forgo the traditonal publishers all together, and strike out on their own. The traditional publishers, of course, are up in arms, seeing their industry slowly circling the drains.

      As time goes on, new technologies move in to replace the old, and we let go of the obsolete. The days of lugging around bulky books has come to an end, and the dawn of a new era has come. The traditional publishers golden days are now far behind.

      And coming from a self published author of ebooks, I say good riddance!

      That's just one author's opinion.

Reviews for Omensent: Birth of a Dragon Lord

Refreshing Fantasy Novel, February 4, 2012 By Didacts & Narpets - See all my reviews This review is from: Omensent (Birth of a Dragon Lord) (Kindle Edition)

Barry Gibbons creates a refreshing perspective on the typical fantasy story. He brings new light to a genre that has seen its days of darkness. He creates characters that are imperfect by nature, which grow and shine as they battle and conquer personal fears and flaws. An enjoyable read with an inherent knowledge base of arcane lore.

Lucy Grayson's review Feb 10, 12

I initially read the sample of this book and was intrigued enough to buy the complete copy. Barry has created a world that is easy to get pulled into, is vividly described and very well presented. A must-read for fans of classic fantasy work.

Hard-hitting, hilarious, and surprisingly human, the Hollywood Vampires throw traditional vampire fiction on its ear.  No trembling teen romances or cliched tragic princes here, just high-impact action and adventure delivered with hard rock attitude.  It's not about what you lose when you become a vampire... it's about everything you GAIN.
