Ebooks are an "incredible, democratic new medium"

Vancouver alt weekly The Georgia Straight interviews me and a few other publishing and literary types about why genre fiction does so well in ebook form. OK, it does well in print form too. But I think it does even better with ebooks.

Darbyshire noted that the romance industry has done for years what the electronic market has only now pushed other authors and publishers to start addressing. Romance wisely cuts out industry gatekeepers and focuses heavily on readers.

“The romance industry has always done a very good job of reaching out to the readers [as] opposed to the bookstores, which is what [traditional] publishers normally do,” he said, on the phone from his home in Langley.
