That is the question.
It's a question that has been debated with as much feeling as politics or religion. Why? I wish I knew the answer. Somehow the whole subject became a war, digital vs print, us vs them, when all any of us want to do is to write our stories and (hopefully) make a little money along the way.
I've always been in support of e-publishing. I also believe that an author should do their homework before signing a contract with ANY publishing house, print or digital. I don't think that any author is less than another just because she chooses an e-first house over a traditional house. And given Dorchester's recent move, the entire argument may sooner, rather than later, become mute. Because if by this time next year Dorchester is showing large financial gain, who wants to guess what NYC biggie will be next to move over to an e-first model?
I'd love to hear your thoughts.
