Caleb's Predictions in trends, the publishing landscape, and what you need to know.
-- The second-most popular search engine in the world became YouTube, with Facebook coming third (Google was first, obviously).
-- Barnes & Noble and Borders are in trouble. Borders lost $74 million during the fourth quarter of 2010, and BN asked for someone to buy the company. Borders was the only company to make an offer. Meanwhile, with sales of ebooks skyrocketing, many authors, even established authors, are beginning to think traditional publishers, who had bookstore distribution, may not be so useful to authors in 2011.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW FOR 2011 AS AN AUTHOR:
-- The successful authors will be those who learn to promote books digitally.
