Behind the Scenes: Backlist Ebooks

WordPlay » Blog Archive » Behind the Scenes: Backlist Ebooks

That is a link to a blog entry explaining a group that C. J. Cherryh pointed me to on facebook.

Writers with out of print backlist titles can get a publisher to do the ebook (as I've done with Wildside Press for Molt Brother and City of a Million Legends) -- or they can put the ebook version on Kindle or smashwords or several other places and get a larger percentage as I've done with Dushau, Farfetch, Outreach and the two Daniel R. Kerns titles in omnibus HERO AND BORDER DISPUTE.

I've been invited to write a blog entry for and I'll talk a little about the ebook revolution and this group.

This is all about the business of writing.

Writer Beware® Blogs!: Assertions and Statistics

Writer Beware® Blogs!: Assertions and Statistics Is a WRITERS BEWARE blog post by Victoria Strauss (look up her credentials and be boggled follow her on twitter at )

This and the linked blog posts within it should be read and carefully absorbed by anyone who doesn't know the publishing industry from the inside and wishes to become a "published" author.

Keep in mind "publishers" really are "investors" just like "producers" who make films, and the writer is the stock they invest in.
