Good point- as long as she's got fans and is making a living, I hope she keeps writing and doing well. My point is that the big publishing houses are making poor choices in some cases by not paying attention to what is going on in the world of digital publishing more. They should be seeing these stories as opportunities to move their business in new ways, instead of fearing the change and suffering the fate of many newspapers.
