I've had a few days to mull over the EPIC Conference (Electronically Published Internet Connection) I recently attended. My historical mystery, MALPRACTICE, was a finalist for an award so it gave me a chance to get dressed up and attend a banquet. It was in Virginia Beach--a very nice setting for the event. I didn't win an EPPIE but It was still fun--and fascinating to see a gathering of electronically published folks. How great to rub shoulders with people excited about writing and publishing everything under the sun from westerns to erotica. A true creative ferment. And all the small niche publishers underway! I have to think this is the future of publishing. With this wonderful new technology it doesn't take scads of money to start your own publishing company. If I weren't so organizationally challenged I would do it myself.
