It's just taken 13 years for Stephen King to wake up.
In the year 2000, he jumped on the e-book bandwagon and allowed publication of a novel in digital format only, selling it online for $2.50.
Now, he's backing off.
He told The Wall Street Journal recently that his new book, called "Joyland," will not have a digital version.
"Maybe at some point," he's quoted as saying, "but in the meantime, let people stir their sticks and go to an actual bookstore rather than a digital one."
Wonder if that means the book will not be sold via Amazon, since that is not an "actual" bookstore in the traditional sense.
This is not a quibble.
King owes the publishing world more than an offhand comment. He perrsonally helped kill off America's bookstores.
So, it's a little late.
Except, then, it is all about getting a bigger cut of the cover price, isn't it?
