When I first read Fay Weldon’s advice that when it comes to ebooks authors should “[a]bandon your dignity and write a racy page-turner,” I got my back up and angrily began typing a retort: typical bloddy snobbery at work here! As I clicked through to Weldon’s blog and gave the issue some thought, I relented a bit. Perhaps the numbers do support the idea that genre and commercial fiction outsells their litrary brethren in ebook form; however, I suspect that this has been the case in paperback too. I recall a few editorial discussion where hardbacks are still viewed by some as having more gravitas than trade paperbacks. Ridiculous, I know. Same for mass-market (pocketbook) editions. And so it seems soom book-types view ebooks through the same lens.
