Rusch on Readers and Their Expectations
Via The Passive Voice I came across Kristine Kathryn Rusch's take on indie writers and their relationship with their readers. She has some interesting points to make as do the commenters relating to her post on The Passive Voice. I don't necessarily agree with all she has to say - in regard to what she has to say about writing volume I'm more in tune with some of the commenters, who point out that all writers are different. This, in turn, reminded me of the posts by Neil Gaiman and John Scalzi in support of G R R Martin when fans objected to how long he was taking to complete his series, Song of Fire and Ice. At the same time, her comments, as someone who has been published by big publishers and now is publishing independently, about the practices of both sides of the industry are always informative. Certainly worth looking at.
