The interview with KOBO CEO Michael Servinis, though short, is worth the read. He’s talking about the speed that everything is happening and how authors have choices now.
Worth the read if you are following this new world of publishing. And Kobo is a major player in this new world.
Also, on Konrath’s site Henry Perez the thriller writer is talking about his experience with Amazon sales. It’s worth the read, plus what Joe says afterwards. But I wanted to quote two of Henry’s paragraphs here to follow up on the last New World of Publishing chapter.
Henry Perez said:
“Ideally, authors should a have a foot in both conventional publishing and e-books, including Amazon exclusives—especially Amazon exclusives. The good news is that being rejected or dropped by New York publishers is no longer a death sentence, not for a book, a series, and certainly not for an author.
Every author, regardless of their success level, now has a powerful outlet for their work. E-books are more than just a tool, though, they represent an important and necessary market for every author. Miss out on the e-book readers, and you’re missing out on the future.”
Hmmmmm….wish I had said it that well.
