Now that you’ve all linked over and read the long discussion between J.A. Konrath and Barry Eisler about moving from a big publisher to e-publishing themselves, I now have an almost as long discussion between authors J.A. Konrath, Barry Eisler and Dean Wesley Smith, who is also making the move.
Dean Wesley Smith agrees in the future of e-publishing for authors, but is in disagreement about exactly how authors should do it. A lot of figures and numbers are tossed back and forth, as well as the benefits, or lack thereof, of agents. If you’re not good at numbers, it may make your brain spin. Having said that, numbers and money are important to authors! So if you have the time, click over and give it a read.
Thank you to Lillie Ammann for alerting me to this continuing discussion.
