Free E-Book on Building Readership by Cory Doctorow

Portrait by Jonathan Worth

My most popular post (so far) this year, 5 Free E-Books Every Writer Needs, could’ve benefited from one more addition:

The Problem Isn’t Piracy, The Problem Is Obscurity by Cory Doctorow

This e-book gathers some of Doctorow’s best essays and rants on why authors should give their work away, stop sweating copyright, and focus on building a community of readers.

I’ve long been a fan of Doctorow. Even if you don’t agree with everything he says, he’s essential reading for all forward-thinking authors.

Also, if you didn’t know, Writer’s Digest magazine from September 2009 features an interview with Doctorow—he’s even on the cover! Go check it out.
