Newer worlds forever rushing in and out, and I always a year or more behind the last one, or the one before that one. Are they still putting out iPhones?
Of course, I know about Kindle and the various e-readers, especially in the last two years, when royalty statements for two books I have written --- Big Top Typewriter and Broadway Musicals: A Hundred Year History, show ebook sales at least equaling or slightly topping paper editions. Suddenly, I am taking note.
Before that, e-sales were nothing compared to paper. So something has changed, and even me getting with it.
BearManor Media, who published my Inside the Changing Circus, offered me a contract to bring out Those Ringings: The Complete Book and Lyrics of the Musical, in Kindle. And I jumped.
How many of you will jump? Only time will tell. So, may I sing to you --- be my jumping Jacks! Simply type in quotation marks "Broadway Musicals" and Amazon will rush in to meet you.
For those of you still typing it out on your loyal royals: You do NOT have to buy one of those e-readers. Amazon takes care of you very easily. They will send you as they sent me up to a cloud. You will be surprised! Maybe even floating.
Well ...at least until the next techno trauma hits.
