Someone asked about paper only deals NO ONE IS INTERESTED. I thought that was insane, but its not. It lines up with Hughs report. Paper is not where the money is at- ebooks are. I made the NYT list this week. Ebook only rank was #7 and Ebook and paper combined was #8. No preorder. Minimal paper sales a few hundred. That also lines up with what Hughs report. Which makes me think, there isnt a lot of money in paper and the risk is greater than the reward. I am trying to do paper distribution myself. Its too early to say what will happen. Ill let you know, but Im thinking there is a reason why the trad pubs are backing off of paper sales. Its not arbitrary, despite their other actions I think theyre right about paper.



If Indies stopped chasing paper, if they stopped thinking that paper would be the difference, well, that would be major.

I don't understand the downside of a paper only deal. Can someone explain? Some people prefer to read paper.
