About 9 years ago I was with Andrew Nurnberg, Literary Agents, London. After 4-5 years I said ‘Cheerio’ and here I am.
I have come to the conclusion that people are not reading ‘books’ anymore – at least the younger generation that is. Its all push buttons and social media – a tax on parental education it would seem.
Back in the early 2000’s, I was selling 50-100 copies per signing. Now, its 20 copies if I’m lucky. People are no longer ‘browsing’. Book shops are in decline.
Whats happening on ebooks (mine are all on ebook format), I wouldn’t like to say – the same thing I suppose.
No ones reading any books, and that’s that.
