I’m becoming a cynical bitch at times. I was reading posts at a certain publishing authors message board last night (why I did that to myself I don’t really know) and saw that one of the threads was about the upcoming releases of a new line the publisher is putting out. All these readers were posting about how they could hardly wait – that although they’ve never tried this particular genre before they were just so anxious to give it a try.
Here’s where the cynical bitch part comes in. Would they all be so enthusiastic if it was any other publisher but this one? Because don’t you know if the books are published by fill in the blank publisher they just HAVE to be wonderful.
In light of all the problems authors of this genre’s ebooks getting recognition, it kind of fries my ass that now that this certain publisher is jumping on the bandwagon it will now become acceptable. While on the one hand good, on the other hand what about the pioneers. Let’s hope they are recognized!
