The latest from J. D. Konrath: $$$

Postby pls » Sun Sep 23, 2012 9:21 pm

J. D. tells it like it is: http://jakonrath.blogspot.com/2012/09/k ... sales.html

However, if you love the Big Six and are easily offended, stay away.

I don't "love" the Big 6, but Konrath offends me, so...

It's really not that hard. Just tell me a story.

He doesn't offend me, but I don't believe everything he says.

I must say that when Konrath stopped by here to discuss self-publishing last year, I was disappointed in him. He didn't want to answer the tough questions even though we were being very kind.

The elephant hiding behind the curtains is the fact that J. D. Konrath established his "platform" via print publishing before he added e-publishing to his retinue. Maybe that's why he's raking in a lot more cash than I am, lol.

Am I wrong in stating that too many writers publish "stuff" before it has been polished and … yes, vetted like a hard-copy book is through the entire process of agent acceptance, agent suggestions for revision, publisher acceptance, publisher revision, etc.? Any predictions as to whether the volume of quickly-written books sent to e-publishing will increase or decrease?

Anyone seen income figures for Amanda Hocking's hard-copy books? One person in a Facebook post stated that they weren't doing so well. (Let's hope that she hired a competent editor for them.)
