Linked: Amanda Hocking on the Publishing Industry

Amanda Hocking on the publishing industry:

Saying traditional publishing is dead right now is like declaring yourself the winner in the sixth inning of a baseball game when you have 2 points and the other team has 8 just because you scored all your points this inning, and they haven’t scored any since the first.

Also, note how she says that ‘people can’t grasp how much work I do’ (and how much of it isn’t writing). For what it’s worth: I’ll say this – Amanda Hocking is nice. Follow her on Twitter if you haven’t already.

    Damn good quote from Amanda. Good perspective. That said, she just scored a few more runs and the opposing team’s entire starting line-up seems lethargic and uninterested in winning.
