THE RISE & RISE OF EBOOKS

The self-publishing revolution is well and truly here and those in the
know talk about tearing down the walls between author and reader.

There are streams of self-help books on how to convert your manuscript
 to bestseller. But for my money Irishman David Gaughan's is the best. Let's Get Digital: How to Self-Publish, and Why You Should. It is comprehensive and written in clear, understandable language, so you 
don't have to be a whiz to follow the instructions and there is a load of
 information and contacts. It has shifted in the region of 4000 copies and is a Sunday Times bestseller as well as the 2012 winner of the Best Non-fiction Independent E-books Award.

The prophets of the book industry predict the continuous growth of ebooks and self-publishing. But there is still a fair bit of resistance: a lot of it generational but some of it purist, with the idea of electronic reading dividing establishment readers.
