Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ from YA Highway where each week there is a writing- or reading-related question for us to answer. Check out YA Highway to follow along with everyone who participates. :-)
This is my first week participating and I'm super excited that the question is:
Assuming we make it through the 2012 apocalypse, what do you imagine the publishing world will look like 100 years from now?
Okay, this is a tough question. Who knows how things will look, so let's have some fun with this.
Perhaps there will be an additional round of agents (pre-agents?) we will have to go through before we can actually submit to a true agent. The pre-agent will weed out those of us that can't figure out exactly where our commas go. The futuristic pre-agent may or may not look like this:
As a result of this there will be many more self-published authors and small publishing houses opening up.
And then, because mirrors, radios, ipods and phones aren't enough, we will also be able to download books instantly to our GPS systems.
So what do YOU think? Do we actually want to survive this apocalypse?
