Let’s face it, the book market is overcrowded, BUT MORE PEOPLE ARE READING!

As an author, editor, formatter, and publishing advisor, I watch trends and the market. Things change and styles evolve. Blogs initially took some book readers away, but now blogs are supporting books! Also, printed books are desirable for in-depth reading you want to hold, cherish, and keep. eBooks are for quick reads “one and done” or sporadic reads on the way to work, a coffee/lunch break, a breather. eBooks are always with you.

The Pandemic has given writers time to write, thus creating more new, first-time writers. But, it also created more readers. The balm of fiction and even poetry, which was always in the shadows, is now sprouting and taking root with more readers. We are seeking true emotion to touch our souls as chaos rules our world. Also, nonfiction, informational, and transformational reading is at an all-time high. We have a need to know “why?”.

The balancing act continues with the positive and negative, but as a reader myself first-and-foremost, the positive always wins in my book!

  1. Hello Deb! Nice share and you are looking good! There was the audio radio generation, then came the visual tv generation. The internet combines all, but reading is now a constant companion. We have undergone some qualifying phases.🤔
