What’s the iPad Mean For Us?

I’m following the stories with a lot of interest, because I think this new gizmo is going to have a big effect on writers – but particularly on writers of erotica.

Our stuff sells like crazy on digital devices, and Apple, with their iBook plans, just opened up a whole new piece of territory for us. When I say territory, I’m talking Louisiana Purchase territory. Already Amazon is revising some of their less than author-friendly policies to try and stay ahead of the Apple wave: http://www.techcrunch.com/2010/01/20/amazon-royalty-kindle-dtp/

And the Kindle hasn’t been bad by any stretch of the imagination. This thriller author broke it down: http://jakonrath.blogspot.com/2009/10/kindle-numbers-traditional-publishing.html As he says, he wouldn’t be doing that well without the start from a traditional publisher, but once established, it sure sounds like you can keep your own books out there and coasting.

I’m looking forward to hearing from publishers on their thoughts about the iPad.
