A couple of quick hits here just to make sure the blog still has a pulse, and to encourage other writers. Here are two more recent signs that the “establishment” media is coming around to a grudging acceptance of the Brave New World of indie publishing.
Yesterday, NPR interviewed Mark Coker of Smashwords in a pretty much snark-free manner, but stand by for the obligatory follow-up with a big cheese at Hatchette publishing is supposed to happen today.
And today, the New York Times reports that Apple will begin highlighting indie “Breakout Books” on iTunes, which gives me one more thing to browbeat you guys about. Get out there and rate that sucker!
That is all. Carry on.
