I've been in a lengthy and detailed discussion in the Romance Community boards at Amazon on the future of copyright
Where I alerted them to the following from the Washington Post
Holiday sales could launch e-book readers as mass-market must-haves - washingtonpost.com
Which is all of direct and immediate interest to me because my Dushau Trilogy is now available on Kindle, and Molt Brother and its direct sequel City of a Million Legends is on fictionwise.com as multi-format ebook, and my Vampire Romances Those of My Blood and Dreamspy are in POD available on Amazon.
There's a publisher and a few writers on this Romance Community thread interacting with readers. As I've been saying on the Alien Romance blog,
there is an intimate relationship between the writer, art, and the reader. The writer must choose which of all the stories in her head that she must write.
Writers have more stories than they can write in a lifetime. They must choose, and market is an important element in that choice.
The Washington Post story on ebook readers and the growth of that market is something all writers must take into account.
