In this week’s show, Taylor and Steve discuss the fungibility of books, and what Taylor has done to try and make her books less fungible to those who enjoy her work.
Wikipedia defines fungibility as follows:
In economics, fungibility is the property of a good or a commodity whose individual units are essentially interchangeable.
One of the examples they use is an ounce of pure gold. Since one kilogram of pure gold is equivalent to any other kilogram of pure gold, whether in the form of coins, ingots, or other in other states, gold is fungible.
Taylor makes the case that for many readers, genre fiction, thrillers, in particular, are fungible. She and Steve discuss how important it is for authors to provide value outside of just their books to their readers and fans.
