Self-Publishing & E-Books: Revenge of the Gatekeepers

JA Konrath, who has sold over 5000 books on Kindle so far this MONTH, has been receiving a lot of hate mail from editors and agents. But he was was not prepared for the onslaught from fellow writers. 


Here's his appraisal :


"Unless I'm reading this wrong, a lot of authors believe that the only worthwhile writing is the writing that has earned the stamp of approval by a NY Publishing House. If an author is selling a lot of self-published ebooks, that is only because the gullible public doesn't know any better. Soon, a flood of pure shit will saturate the ebook market (some say this has already happened) making it impossible for "real" authors to sell their books.

Sorry. You're wrong."
