Lots of P.O.D. nominees at Lambda Literary

Interesting to see that 7 of the 12 titles listed as of today for the Gay Debut Fiction category (Benediction included) are P.O.D. titles, 6 from BookSurge and 1 from iUniverse. I imagine that is a graphic illustration of just how much the traditional publishing business is changing as well as evidence of authors taking the reins of the process, following in the footsteps of what’s happened in the music business over the last ten years or so. As beneficial as this “democratization” of the ways to introduce artistic products to the masses is, I for one hope there will always be at least a few movie theaters and brick-and-mortar bookstores around.
