Self-Publishing Blog Posts - Sales Data, Design and Industry News

I spent the evening catching up on reading about the self-publishing industry and came across some blog posts worth sharing. Konrath's in particular is worth reading as he provides data based on his actual sales as a self-publishing author.

Here are the blogs and the posts!

J.A. Konrath provides data, based on his own experience, on why you should self-publish - Kornath's Newbies Guide to Publishing

A long but interesting article from Forbes titled: Publishing is Broken, We're Drowning in Indie Books - And That's a Good Thing!

While it is from July, this post from Small Town Press is worth checking out because it actual sales data from a self-published author. The data is comparing Kindle versus paperback sales.
