Tim Ferriss (yes the man behind the 4-hour work week) has written an interesting piece on the economics of publishing ~ the traditional vs self publishing model, be it print or digital. He takes a hard look at the royalty figures, the real numbers and provides some tips.
For all budding authors we recommend you read How Authors Really Make Money: The Rebirth of Seth Godin and Death of Traditional Publishing before rushing to self publish.
There will be a discussion about the expanding self-publishing phenomenon and its implications in the art and publishing world as part of The London Art Book Fair.
Saturday 25 September, 4pm at Whitechapel Gallery, 77-82 Whitechapel High Street, London E1 7QX. tickets here
If you’re interested in creating and self publishing a book, Self Publish, Be Happy are calling for submissions for their upcoming workshop. deadline 24th September 2010.
