So there I was, looking at lovely book production data, and…
What happened in 2010? Did everyone in the country finally publish their book? All at the same time?
That’s a 225% increase, folks. Maybe every author in the country who ever got rejected, ever, suddenly decided to self-publish a book in 2010. But Nielsen also say that the spike was down to a single print-on-demand publisher, and in 2011 the number of titles was back down to 2,000 again, so who knows?
I don’t have any answers today, only one big question. But it would make you think.
(What, I don’t know. It just makes me think. Isn’t that enough for this hour on a Friday?)
