Customer Review

on 11 August 2012
This is a must - a very cheap must, at under £1 - for anyone interested in self-publishing. Self-publishing has been transformed from the last resort of the desperate to a viable business model by the advent of e-publishing and high royalties (up to 70%) going directly to the author from distributors such as Amazon (through Kindle Direct Publishing). Many midlist authors are now prospering in a way that they couldn't with traditional publishing, Konrath being one of them (he's now a bestseller); and bestseller Eisler walked away from a $500,000 publishing deal to self-publish having seen trailblazer Konrath's data.

Joe Konrath has a fascinating blog - the Newbie's Guide to Publishing - in which he's often rather aggressive in tone and it's refreshing to read him in conversation with a friend he clearly likes and respects, making for a more responsive and considered dialogue.

Changes in the publishing industry are fast-moving now as the ebook/self-publishing revolution gathers pace. I hope Konrath and Eisler will continue to discuss the issues and publish more conversations if they do.
