Chances for more voices to be heard
One of the benefits of the Internet for musicians and to some extent film makers is the platform it provides for them to get global attention. The costs are minimum and fan power can prove that a record company should sign a band or a film has an audience. it got me wondering if the same was true of writers and I received an email the other day that gave an indication that digital books, which are obviously cheaper to produce than the printed alternative, is a way for unpublished authors and poets to get their work out to a larger audience. I haven’t looked into it yet in great detail but the DigitalPulp Publishing Company do seem to have quite a wide mix of selections online at its cyber bookstore. I’m going to try and find out more about this because it might also be a way of getting older translations back into circulation, which would be a great.
