I have to wonder — why do people keeping beating the same old horses when they’re practically dead on their feet and no threat to anyone? What inspired that? One more blog post about how the demand for “free” is going to drive writers out of business. As if there isn’t plenty of evidence that more and more writers are making money from their writing now that they can self-publish. When it comes to ebooks, the only “free” is the cost of doing business. You can, of course, spend money on editing, book covers, promotion, but this is, more than ever, the age of DIY, and writers are just as capable of learning new skills as anyone else. Unless you’re completely incompetent and/or stupid, there’s no way you can price yourself out of a reasonable income from writing.
