The lowdown on self-publishing

I keep abreast of publishing developments.

I'm a member of several writing organisations, I'm on loops for these organisations, I read the digests.

I don't think I've been living under a rock but I hadn't heard the name Amanda Hocking until recently.

Self-publishing talk is exploding all over the Net in a big way.

Here are 2 posts you have to read.

The first, by Nathan Bransford (read 'Amanda Hocking & the 99 cent kindle millionaires', including the comments.)

Next, read Donna Ball, where she gives her real figures on self-publishing.

We live in interesting times...

I love Amanda's story :-) I'm off to read those two articles! Thanks Nic!

Amanda's story is amazing, Lacey, but I think it's rare.

JA Konrath & Amanda Hocking are the success stories of self-pubbing but I wonder how many aren't making much?

Would be an interesting study!
