So Evans self-published, and only after his book hit the bestseller list did a major publisher buy it, for a reported $4 million. So in a way he became a godfather to a whole new generation of authors who are writing the next chapter in the saga of self-publishing.
Great article about self-publishing success stories.
Kudos to Stephanie Bond. From the article: "But now, with romance one of the hottest categories for self-published books, her (Stephanie Bond) novels are flying off the virtual shelves. This past week a Bond book, "Stop the Wedding," was number 2 on Amazon's Kindle bestseller list."
Keep an eye on the freelancing blog. I'll be starting a new series on Kindle self-publishing shortly. Self-publishing was the hottest story for writers in 2012 (EL James and others' successes), and it will be hot in 2013, too.
