What Do You Think The Future of Publishing Will Be?
I've heard you talk about this in a lecture and an interview you put in the feed last year. But I'm interested in hearing your wildest of wild speculations:
- What role will actual printed on paper media have? Will it remain big? Will it be marginalized? Will it go away entirely?
- What role will companies play? Will successful, professional authors rely mostly on a small staff of their own to help organize events and whatnot, or will there also be a role for big companies that deal with multiple authors?
- What will be the main way that authors make money? Will they sell their works in some form or will they make it through advertising/merchandise/you fill in the blank.
I'd love to hear any and all thoughts you have on the matter.
