A Most Wonderful Time in Publishing History

Welcome whoever you are.

The age of the digital book is upon us.  We don't quite know what it means and how it will shake out.  Certainly the dead tree publishers are scrambling like mad while writers are rejoicing--as they quickly reformat their manuscripts and upload them to Kindle.

I'm nearly giddy!  I had a moment about a week ago when I felt completely free.  Free from ever having to search for an agent again.  Free from the 23 year old editors who work for Bertlesmann for peanuts and live in a studio apartment because they can't afford anything else.  Free from the expectations and requirements.  Free from coastal mores.

It's a lovely time to be a writer.

Let's celebrate the vast possibilities open to us with Jack Bruce.
