Happy new year, Agatho!

I'm going to focus on #2. READ SOMEONE NEW, and the way this is happening in the UK since the advent of the Kindle. It's given a real boost to indie authors unable to get mainstream publication, and unable to crack the publishers' monopoly of the bookshops; readers have shown themselves happy to try an unknown author on their Kindle, if the book looks promising and the price is low.

(I thought as you hadn't mentioned ebooks, I would.)


Speaking of #2, I just read our Sunday Paper's bestseller list (Clancy, Grisham, Patterson, Cornwell, Follett, etc.) which included not one new, unknown indie writer. Unsung Michael Hogan doesn't stand a chance! ... and "Buriel of the Dead" is ten-fold better than anything on this tired list. Truly. I've read it and would read it again.
