Self-Publishing vs. Traditional Publishing with Richard Lee Byers

reaverIn episode 11, Richard Lee Byers returns to the show, this time to talk about self-publishing and traditional publisjhing. As someone who has both been traditionally-published and self-published, Richard is a hybrid author and thus has a valuable perspective on the self vs. traditional debate that’s become a very big focus in the publishing industry, especially in recent months. In addition, Richard provides an overview of the different systems and he and Perry discuss some of the other interesting things happening in the world of publishing, such as Kindle Worlds, and how they may impact the future for authors.

  1. Excellent and highly informative episode, Percival! This was quite important to me as a writer and fledgling independent publisher. Thank you for continuing to produce this podcast, and thank you to your guest Richard Lee Byers for participating. You’ll both be pleased to know that I immediately purchased first of Richard’s books in THE IMPOSTER series after hearing it promoted here. I look forward to reading them! I’ve also been quite enjoying my recent purchase in your VANGUARD super-hero series, Percival! I commend both of you for selling e-books at an affordable price, as it enables me to buy several of each of your books per paycheck without breaking my bank. This is a trend that most definitely needs to be continued in the world of publishing!
