"The Best Way To Break Into Science Fiction Writing Is Through Online Publishing"

As seen on io9: The Best Way To Break Into Science Fiction Writing Is Through Online Publishing. An excerpt:

The only way forward for new writers is digital publishing, says game and novel writer Michael Stackpole. If you want to write for a living, learn to love this post-paper age.

Stackpole gave a seminar titled, "Writing in the post-paper era," at the Origins Game Fair in Columbus, OH a week ago. His feelings on the subject were made clear immediately when he pointed out that he was the first author to make short stories available through the iPhone App Store. Stackpole is convinced that both established and fledgling authors need to embrace new content delivery methods or fade into irrelevance. In fact, he offered evidence that digital publishing will not only be necessary for authors, but that it will work in their favor.
