    Thank you for sharing the news, Dan. I appreciate you offering up more information on the cocky issue…what I’ve heard disturbs me deeply in its implications for copyright and use of words.

    Careful, Dan! – Faleena Hopkins wasn’t “A” Keynote at 20 Books – she was “THE” Keynote – she’ll probably come after you now!! 🙂

    Great Roundup, Dan. Lots of ire in the literary world these days. I believe authors are feeling overwhelmed as they go through such major changes in technology, marketing, and networking along with publishers and distributors. That feeling is a recipe for lots of instant reaction rather than analysis that takes time.Thanks for being someone who is able to report objectively and provide content links that are meaningful.

    I’ve heard people say that (at least in the U.S.) the ebook market has reached maturity, which is why growth in profit is leveling out and that we won’t see as much change moving forward. I don’t think we are there yet because of the interconnctedness of the global marketplace. That global relationship means that as other countries come onboard with their unique marketplace culture and functionality, that it introduces both innovation and confusion for indies. I believe we are still in a place of high innovation and we must continue to become adept at riding these waves of people and businesses trying different things–both technologically and in attempts to capture the market.
