This book’s publisher, Intranätverk, recently published a manifesto. Read below. Already being an author of one book I can only praise such an initiative. Being a niche-author is not as glamorous as some people seem to believe. Currently I make 7.3 EUR when I sell a book, but to make that sale I had to finance my own inventory. So, I bought a lot of my own books. For 7 EUR each, and if someone buys it I’ll make 0.3 EUR. This is called self-publishing, and it’s not really a great incentive to authors.
Well, the English edition of the web strategy book is published by Intranätverk and I’m inclined to publish all my future books this way since it lets me focus on writing.
