Digital technology changing the face of publishing industry
A writer turned down by traditional publishers — or even avoiding them — now has a range of options.

The phenomenal growth of e-readers and tablets has vastly expanded the market for e-books, which can be self-published at little or no cost.
Writers who self-publish are more likely to be able to control the rights to their books, set their books’ sale price and keep a larger proportion of the sales.
