Why you still need a proofreader, even if your editor is a superhero...

My regular(ish) column for IndieReader is out. Today I express (extreme) skepticism about enhanced e-books - for adult fiction - and wonder where the push is coming from. Could it be that large publishers attempting to make digital publishing expensive (and killing off a horde of competitors in one fell swoop)?

And now for something completely different. Today, I interview a friend of mine - Niklas Leavy - a Swedish author who has just self-published his first book. What makes this so different? Well, for starters, he's a straight guy writing gay romance.

Writing humor is tough--it's tough to get people to agree on what's funny.

The average self-publisher sells 100 books. Or is it 200? And is that in a year? Or is it over the lifetime of the book? The problem is, we have no idea at all, no way of measuring how we are doing.

Steven Lewis has put together a comprehensive survey of self-publishers and I have a guest post from him explaining the thinking behind it. Please take the time to take the survey - it only takes a few minutes - and it will give us an accurate picture of how self-publishers are doing, and what helps them sell books.

Comprehensive Self-Publishing Survey – Please Participate!
