    I’ve wondered about this and the guy makes some good points. I’ve read about a few Kindle authors who got into publishing companies, but they never got the same fame they had as a Kindle author. I think with a .99 cent book, you get more sales because the book is cheap enough to take a risk on. This can be misleading to agents and publishers who are simply looking for a high-selling book. It doesn’t mean the book is good enough to thrive under a professional publisher.

    I love his conclusion that self-published books are only one source of new authors, but I don’t think things will ever go entirely in that direction. There are a lot of new authors who refuse to go this route out of either fear or thinking that such a path is not for them.

  2. Thanks for the link. Interesting article. I’ve heard this mentioned a few times recently and so many differing views on whether it is or isn’t. 🙂
