Writers Rejoice! A monthly diary of the dawn of the digital age(2014)
A non fiction book by Michael Allen
Writers Rejoice! For the digital age is upon us. In the summer of 2007, no one had ever heard of the Kindle ebook reader. But since 2007 there has been a digital revolution in publishing. And it is one which opens up amazing new opportunities for writers. In Writers Rejoice!, Michael Allen provides a month by month commentary on the progress of the digital revolution, from 2007 to the present. And he also explains how writers can take the maximum advantage of the new routes to publication which are now available. It is no longer necessary for writers to slave away for years, knocking on countless doors of agents and publishers, only to face continual rejection. Today - right now - writers can do it all themselves. They can write a book and publish it in ebook or paperback form without having to persuade a single soul to help them. And some of today's writers have done exactly that, with dazzling success. If that isn't the golden dawn of a new age of limitless opportunity for writers, then what is? And unless you have lived through several decades of doing things the old way, and have experienced the pain and heartache which accompany such efforts, you just can't imagine how lucky you are.
