You can read an expanded version of this article in the 1 December 2011 issue of Buzz Words.
Buzz Words is an e-zine for writers, illustrators, publicists, anyone involved with children’s books.
I briefly talk about the popularity of the e-book for authors. The full article is available to members only, so if you're a writer of children and young adult books this is great resourse. Well worth the $44 membership price. Each forthnight you'll receive in your inbox, a newsletter packed with interviews, writing opportunities, publishing and competition information.
