Re: Sending a Self-Published Book to a Potential Agent

This was just the advice from one agent, but Eddie Schneider with Jabberwocky said that if you haven't sold 10,000 copies you don't even need to mention that it's self-published. That was just for him, but I thought that was interesting. He said that in an AMA in the r/fantasy reddit.

Re: Do you have a new blog post?

Last weekend at the World Fantasy Convention, I had a 65-minute conversation with Michael A. Stackpole about the state of publishing and ebooks. We also talked about ebook pricing (and J.A.

Nielsen BookScan to Track Ebook Sales by the End of 2010?

I know it's normally not kosher to start a thread about one of your own blog posts, but I ran this topic by Nathan first and he suggested posting here. Here's my recent post: Nielsen BookScan to Track Ebook Sales by the End of 2010? The most interesting thing about all of this for me is that transpa...

Re: SF vs. ATL

Ha! Go go gadget Google alerts! The Braves are the team I follow the most in pro sports, so it's great to see them back in the postseason again. I'm looking forward to a great series between the Braves and Giants, a series that could be very low scoring. Old school baseball! Bring on the pitching du...

Re: Do you have a new blog post?

My first news feature at AdventuresInSciFiPublishing has gone up here, and it's also repeated on my blog.

It was a lot of fun to write, and there's some humor in there.

Re: One of the greatest novels? I give it one star.

To Kill a Mockingbird (1960)
Author: Harper Lee

“I don’t see why this book is so fabulous. I would give it a zero. I find no point in writing a book about segregation, there’s no way of making it into an enjoyable book. And yes I am totally against segregation.”
Bwahaha!
