Just put out a video for you – this one’s about the gaping gap of opportunity between the huge publishing houses and the small, unknown, self-publishing writer.
What happened to first music and then software in the last ten years, is now fast happening to books. And this time, the underdog gets to WIN!
Call it the Golden Era of eBooks… or the Age of Authorpreneurship… whatever you prefer.
But do check out this quick 15 minute video that lays it all out for you:
See you there!
Really nice video, totally got me to check out the amazon kindle store thing. Too bad the 70% Royalty fee in the Kindle store only seems to apply to people living in Canada, the US or the UK. :/ Other regions it’s just 35% . Reading that creates one of those moments I wonder why I’m here in Finland haha. Anyway, keep up with this awesome blog. 🙂 Thanks for the dose of inspiration!
Short rectification, after 3 times re-reading I just notice that the 35% royalty thing applies to sales to customers outside those 3 areas, not to the location of the author. Makes sense.
Really? I hadn’t heard of such a discrepancy. Thanks, I’ll look into it. Still, not so bad considering the take affiliates usually take is 50-75%…
