Thanks to Kindle and other e-readers Indie writers are finally getting the attention they deserve. Hot off the presses the “50 Shades of Grey” self published Kindle bestseller trilogy is now in paperback at your local Target and Walmart and the movie rights have already been sold. The blog “Self-Publishing Success Stories” has compiled a list of more than 170 authors who have sold more than 50,000 self-published ebooks to date. These sales figures are meant to inspire other authors but the real message is that traditional publishing houses have become dinosaurs. Unable or unwilling to change with the times they are being left behind while self published authors sell more than many best sellers back in the day.
