This is actually directed at authors, rather than readers, but any readers who want to chime in, can do so.
I’ve heard from certain publishers that during romance book conferences, e-book authors often feel inferior to their print counterparts, because print authors/publishers don’t consider e-bookers to be ‘real’ authors. I wonder how true that is?
I’ve also heard several authors defend their e-book author status, by saying that they’d choose e-books over print anyday, because they have greater freedom in terms of their work, they can write outside the box, yadda yadda yadda.
Is that really the general consensus?
Whenever an e-book author gets a contract with Kensington or any of the big NY houses, there’s this level of excitement, and a general feeling from the author that, yes, they finally made it, despite already having written multiple books for trhe likes of Samhain or Elloras Cave.
Let’s face it, when was the last time Lora Leigh had an e-book out? And she got her start in e-books.
So my my question to the e-book authors is this: If you had a choice between writing for a house like Elloras Cave or Samhain Publishing and writing for an NY house like Kensington, who would you choose? Honestly?
Which would Lora Leigh have chosen back in the day, had she been given the choice then?
