Camy Posted July 20, 2012 Report Share Posted July 20, 2012 Author Denise Mina predicts fiction revolutionThe rise of ebooks will "fundamentally change" the types of stories that are written and who they are written by, an award-winning author has predicted. Denise Mina's book The End of the Wasp Season won the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year Award in Harrogate, Yorkshire, on Thursday. Ebooks will "revolutionise everything" from book lengths to the dominance of middle-class authors, she said. "People are very frightened in publishing at the moment," she said. "Nobody knows what sells. More so now because the market's changing so fundamentally because of Kindle and electronic publishing. It's a fundamental shift in the way stories are put out into the world." http://www.bbc.co.uk...t-arts-18921480 Quote Link to comment
