I guess I've been in a black hole without internet service. I was surfing my favorite blogs and catching up yesterday when I came across literary agent Lori Perkin's blog. She posted an article from the New York Times about major changes within the publishing industry. I knew things were bad with the economy and the trickle down effects would cause some negative issues within the industry, but the articles and blog post brought up some valid points about e-publishing.
I've got a few friends and crit partners that are e-pubbed and I've been thinking lately about changing my submission target. I started out targeting Harlequin because I enjoy reading several of the lines they publish. It also helps that they pay advances. But I've been buying e-books to support my friends and crit partners, so I've been surfing a few of the e-pubs and looking through their submission guidelines. At this point though...I need to just sit down and write. See what you think about the articles...
