The acclaimed fantasy author, Charles de Lint, writes a column, “Books To Look For.” In the May-June Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, he reviews Black Wolf by Steph Shangraw, published by Prysmeat Books. Yes, that’s an independent publisher.

De Lint writes: “I’m fascinated with the proliferation of independently published books. But before I get into the whys and wherefores, let me first say that I don’t dislike offerings from what’s coming to be referred to as legacy publishing (i.e., books printed and distributed by the big publishing houses). I just think there’s room for everybody. The more voices writing their own stories there are, the more choices there are for readers. And a lot of voices from a lot of different sources are a good thing, especially since I’m not all that sure legacy publishers will be around that much longer.

“Or at least not in their current state. Ebooks haven’t completely overtaken paper books yet, but the writing seems to be on the wall. It’ll be especially interesting to see what happens as the coming generations of readers—more accustomed to reading everything on a screen, from texts to websites to magazines and books—become the main consumers.

“Which doesn’t mean I think paper books will disappear. I see them becoming more like physical pieces of art, lovingly designed and published by small presses that will celebrate the physical aspect of a book as well as what lies inside its pages. But the days seem to be numbered for the cheap mass market paperback—the kinds of books that most people read once, then dispose of. Ebooks fit that bill as well, but the delete button on your reader is a lot easier to utilize than having to box up a bunch of physical books and then haul them down to your local thrift shop.

“All of which certainly helps indie publishers, many of whom are of that generation cited above: they’ve matured with technology as a normal part of their lives. There’s a growing movement among these young authors—savvy with technology in a way that their elders aren’t—to do it all on one’s own.. . . .

“The authors who decide to go the indie route do so for a number of reasons other than the fact that a legacy publisher isn’t interested in their work. . . . Sometimes the subject matter is simply too edgy—too violent, perhaps, or dealing with sexual/political/social elements that don’t fit the philosophy or style of the legacy publisher.

“But sometimes. . . . it’s simply not the kind of book a legacy publisher would be interested in. The pacing doesn’t match that of titles currently doing well in the marketplace. There might be too much description, or the plot moves in odd directions. . . .

“If an editor did work on a book like this, they’d probably cut a lot of what some might consider unnecessary description, subplots, and backstory. They’d rearrange the plot elements into a more linear narrative, with more forward drive.

“Which makes me glad there’s now a ready outlet for authors with a more idiosyncratic way of telling a story.”

So there you have it, my friends. Do you think legacy publishing is going to disappear and that small presses will take over the business? What about ebooks? The latest statistic in Publisher’s Weekly is that ebook sales growth is down, but I don’t know how that compares to print sales. And we’re still talking about a three hundred million dollar market for ebooks.

I love print books. I love to hold them, relax anywhere with an adequate light source and a good book. My husband, Tom Robinson, and I must own about 25,000 books (Tom has dealt rare books and been a partner in various Bay Area bookstores).

But the ebook revolution of a mere four years ago has been a huge boon both to professional authors and those authors who have chosen or been forced to choose independent publishing. Independent publishing gives an author power and freedom over his or her career, from choosing one’s own cover art, to deadlines, to far greater royalties than a traditional author earns on an ebook.

In a previous blog, I noted that Smashwords predicts independent authors will command fifty percent of the ebook market and ebook earnings within the next five years. And as people are becoming more acclimated to ereaders and appreciating the ease and modernity of them, more readers of print books will buy readers and ebooks.

In a mere four years, ebooks have gone from ten percent of the total book market to thirty percent and more. All the Big Publishers are making hundreds of millions of dollars on ebooks!

But thirty percent leaves seventy percent of books sold to the print market.

You may be tempted as an independent author to jump feet first into print publishing. If you and your family have enough income to afford an expensive hobby, go for it. But there are many reasons for independently published authors to exercise caution before investing in a print edition of their books.

First, it has always been expensive to self-publish a print book and still is. Createspace tells authors they can create a print book for free, but immediately there’s a huge caveat attached to that. You have to know HTML programming and have a good design sense. If you don’t, you can’t do it on your own for free. You’ll need the Createspace team to help you—for a hefty price.

Createspace is a subsidiary of Amazon.com. Most independent bookstores out there and the one major remaining bookstore chain, Barnes and Noble, refuse to stock Createspace books.

Plenty of other self-publishing businesses are out there and eager to take your money. Some are out-and-out scams.

But let’s assume you can handle all that and want to produce your book in print, anyway. Great! Be advised there’s another huge problem.

You can’t compete with the Big Publishers and Big Media.

Even if a Big Publisher doesn’t lift a finger to publicize an author’s book, that book still gets listed in a catalog of forthcoming books that goes out to all the bookstores, may be submitted for review in trade journals and newspapers, and gets listed on the Big Publisher’s website.

Independent authors have competed well with ebooks, but even the best don’t do well when it comes to their print books. I’ve been following various authors, including authors promoted on the Kindle Direct monthly newsletter. In every case, an author who may have a fairly high-ranking ebook lags way, way behind with his or her print book.

So there you have it, my friends. Until private people can compete with Big Media—and I don’t see that happening any time soon—you’re better off producing an ebook at little or no cost but your time (which isn’t free, I know!) than tilting at windmills with a print book. Sad, but true.

There are a few other tools that you can use, however. Namely write a brilliant book, produce it up to professional standards, write more books, and pursue hybrid publishing. I’ll address those tools in upcoming blogs.
