Scott Nicholson (http://hauntedcomputer.blogpost.com) has an interesting post on the potential impact on the publishing industry with all of the new avenues that writers have for getting their work out there.
I’m very much in agreement with him. I don’t see an issue with all of the new work being put out there. I give a writer a couple of pages to reel me in. Usually it’s a couple of pages if I’m in a book store, or whatever sample they’ve provided via Kindle. That’s my purchase decision. If I’m still digging what I’m reading after 75-100 pages, I’m going all the way. If not, its gone.
