Writers gaining more creative control

From the Irish Times: “The notion that a story has a natural length has long been championed by writers and ignored by publishers. … The ebooks industry is removing the burden of length from writing. Away from the high overheads of print, digital publishing can afford to match pricing to length. … All digital books are equal (but some are more equal than others). This has the power to revolutionise writing. Free to choose whatever form best suits the story and still get published, writers should in the future have more creative control.”
