New Report States the Obvious: Indie Authors a Threat to Legacy Publishers

New Report States the Obvious: Indie Authors a Threat to Legacy Publishers | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
Indie authors, as well as outside pundits like Data Guy, have been saying for years now that self-published authors are a threat to the livelihood of the legacy publishing industry. The Bookseller has a story this morning on a new report from Enders Analysis which basically repeats some of the facts uncovered by the Author Earnings Report over the past few years. To date, self-publishing has become a fairly large presence in the e-book sector, but the impact on the publishing industry as a whole has been more limited. Self-publishing represents a significant but separate books market, with low prices, focused on series within genre categories. Readers are more sensitive to price than reputation and read in high volumes. In March, we analysed the 100 top-selling e-books on Amazon US, and found that 40 were self-published. These had an average sales price of $2.41, compared to $6.23 for all other books (and $9.10 for e-books from the “Big Five” publishers). Sixty-five per cent of the self-published titles we examined were romance or erotica, with a further 22% falling under sci-fi or fantasy, usually with a strong romance theme as well. The piece then goes on to confirm what we already knew [...]

Apple Launches Its Third Annual “Discover New Big Five Authors” Promotion | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
Apple has launched its third annual Discover New (Big Five) Authors promotion, featuring ebooks from publishers like HarperCollins, Pan Macmillan, and Hachette. The promotion runs over the course of what Americans would call the Labor Day Memorial Day weekend, and it lets iBooks users download the ebooks for free from today through Monday (30 May). The four titles featured in the campaign include Dare Me by Megan Abbott (Pan Macmillan), Kitchens of the Great Midwest by J. Ryan Stradal (Quercus), Annihilation by Jeff VanderMeer (HarperCollins), and Someone Else's Skin by Sarah Hilary (Headline). The Bookseller reported that all the authors are “the ones to watch” and “rising stars as writers and novelists,” according to Apple, but since they are all also published by the Big Five we have to wonder just who wants us to watch them. The Discover New Authors available to iBooks customers in Germany, France, Austria, Ireland, the UK, and Switzerland for the Bank Holiday promotion. Apple has been running this promotion since at least 2014. The Bookseller image by keepitsurreal

Romance sells, and its readers like their smartphone e-books

Romance sells, and its readers like their smartphone e-books | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
The Economist has an article looking at the success of the romance and erotica genres in the United Kingdom, and the stigma that still attaches to the genre. Even though romance and erotica has sold 39.8 million physical books worth £178.09 million (US $260.55 million), public attitude toward popular romance/erotica titles (such as the 50 Shades trilogy) tends to be scathing. The article notes that romance and erotica has a strong tradition of self-publishing, and was one of the earliest genres to capitalize on e-books’ anonymity. (Romance e-book store Ellora’s Cave was going strong in 2006 before most people even had e-readers.) The most interesting thing to me is that

MIT media studies prof on media’s future: Virtual and augmented reality

MIT media studies prof on media’s future: Virtual and augmented reality | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
I attended a couple of fascinating lectures by William Uricchio, Professor of Comparative Media Studies at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, at the Center for Media, Data and Society, part of the School of Public Policy at Budapest’s Central European University. The lectures, in principle focused on developments in virtual reality and journalism respectively, in practice ranged far wider, over huge areas of the media landscape, including Big Five publishing, printed books and ebooks, and the authority of the text. Revenue from Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality could reach $120 billion by 2020, according to one forecast. And players from Big Media and Tech are part of the game. “The amount of
