One of the biggest changes is when a person goes from ebooks to paperbacks, I have witnessed in some former associates a nasty habit of looking down on those less fortunate. Is this a new trait they develop or the exposure of what was hidden?
We were in a FB group with some friends and the younger writers in the group were getting books on the shelves, this point had already changed how they viewed those of us less fortunate, add to this we had to endure endless chats about how well they were doing at college and how their books were selling.
Last October a close friend won a writing award, which was followed the next week by mine and did we get praised? Bet your bottom dollar, we did NOT.
We were treated like vermin, neither had a college education nor paperbacks to show, all we had was a few ebooks but WE, the older generation had won awards for writing.
One of the people concerned spent more time bemoaning her returns than anything else. Does that tell you something? ;)
So, if you think prejudice comes only from established writers to the Indie writers - think again, my friend - even within the indie writing world their is a them & us which exists between ebooks and paperbacks.
