Writing fiction is the hot new thing for professional writers, for one reason: money.
Here’s a snippet from a recent news release.
In 2013, self-publishing authors hit major bestseller lists in a big way. According to a recent article in The New Yorker magazine about the decline of romance publisher Harlequin, there were 99 self-published ebook bestsellers in 2013.
The same article maintained that while major publishers like Harlequin previously nurtured new authors, in 2014 new authors preferred to self-publish.
