CNET turned the spotlight on indie authors in a way that made me smile despite being hurt because a fellow author said it made them want to cry. In years past this would have left me upset for days. My mind would be riddled with questions of why? Apparently I’ve grown because I had none of my past reactions. It’s easy to recognized how new technology if untapped could be seen as a threat to traditional authors and publishers who benefit from the elite and exclusive atmosphere of the publishing industry before the invent of POD and ebooks.
