A Hybrid Author Busts the Myths: Should You Self Publish?

A Hybrid Author Busts the Myths:  Should You Self Publish? | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it

This was the perfect place for me: I'm a hybrid author who has jumped from a traditional publisher (Random House) to indie publishing and back to a traditional house again. As I start my fourth novel to be published by New American Library/Penguin Random House, I have no contract for the next one. This means that I'm revisiting the all-important question for many writers: do I want to go solo when I publish my next book, or stay where I am?

Joe Wikert's Digital Content Strategies: A business model I’m sorry we’ll never see

Joe Wikert's Digital Content Strategies: A business model I’m sorry we’ll never see | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it

Third, and perhaps more importantly, I think other retailers now know that any model they offer will quickly be copied and likely squashed by Amazon. That may have always been the case but it feels like there’s no less room for retailers to innovate and compete than ever before. Besides, Amazon is (and should be) more focused on making Prime as broad and irresistible as possible and less interested in the more limited goal of free devices to secure future content purchase commitments. Even though Amazon started with books they’re now making more money from people like me because I’m ordering so many other things. They don’t want to be the next Barnes & Noble when they’re on their way to becoming the next Walmart instead.
