E-books are up 160.1% in the first five months of 2011 (from the same period last year). Print has fallen dramatically in all categories. Meanwhile, Borders is closing and Barnes & Noble plans to further reduce store space (and orders) for books and return many of the books they already have to publishers.

Just me gushing a bit about how J. K. Rowling's plot grid changed my entire approaching to planning out a novel. :D

A quick reminder-post about the importance of both past and present when worldbuilding: http://claudiea.blogspot.com/2011/07/wo ... eline.html
"I do not think there is any thrill [...] like that felt by the inventor as he sees some creation of the brain unfolding to success... Such emotions make a man forget food, sleep, friends, love, everything." -- Nikola Tesla

Our most important contract is the one we make with our readers.
I talk about why it's so essential to maintain our readers' trust, and what we, as readers, expect from authors we trust.
