Publishing companies have recently been publishing books from several famous Youtubers on Youtube. This is no surprise to some of you, as they've been doing it for years now and no one has said a thing until, of course, Zoella came up with her YA debut novel Girl Online. I, myself, have not gotten a chance to read the book. This isn't a post shaming Zoella or all of the other fabulous Youtubers who have gotten their own books published. I am genuinely happy for her and others because well I'm obsessed, and I binge watch Youtube as well!
Youtubers will potentially change the publishing company and how the system works. Now whether that is for better or worse is really up for grabs and interpretation. How do you view it? What do I see it as? I see it as publishing companies publishing books of Youtube Stars with millions of fans and subscribers because well for what else... the moolahh and the money. What about the girl under the covers writing a story every night and has the potential to become the next J.K. Rowling? When will her get published? She doesn't have any fans of subscribers, much less one million. Will this affect future author's being published? Will publishing companies continue to aim for famous Youtube stars?
