Although the rate of growth has slowed for e-books, the affordability and accessibility of digital will continue to erode print readership. Writers retain all rights while earning 60%–80% of the list price as their e-book royalty. Indies will continue gaining digital market share as they pioneer tomorrow’s best practices for pricing, production, and promotion. While I have never topped a bestseller list, I self-publish all my book in print and electronic format.
