Been doing a lot of catch up reading over at Joe Konrath’s blog. In case you don’t know he has had tremendous success selling his novels on his own. For years he counseled writers not to self-publish but recently he has changed his stance on this.
Very interesting is one mock question and answer he put into that post:
Q: You’re such a hypocrite. You’ve got several print deals.
A: I signed those deals before I came to this conclusion. I highly doubt I’ll ever sign another print deal.
Another great post to review is his most recent one, in response to an earlier post by Richard Curtis.
Does this mean I am going to be self-publishing my novels? Probably not. But I think at this point an author would be foolish not to at least examine all the pros and cons of self publishing.
