Author interview with +Barry Eisler 

Author interview with +Barry Eisler 

I recently had the honor of hosting one of my favorite authors on a Google+ Hangout. Barry Eisler is a New York Times bestselling author who has embraced self-publishing. Barry is boldly leading the way for authors who want to take control of their book and publishing process.

Here is an excerpt from the video:

“I can’t imagine going back to the legacy world and I doubt they would want to have me after how outspoken I’ve been about the industry. I really like publishing with Amazon as my publisher and I’m pretty sure I’m going to continue to do a mix of these two things. Your question is a great one because there are so many paper or analog artifacts that persist even in the digital world and one of them is the notion that we’re living in some sort of either or universe, which really interests me because we’re not. It used to be that there was only one game in town and that was legacy, paper publishing, if you wanted to reach a mass audience you would have to do this alone.”
  
A few things that Barry loves about self-publishing:
• Speed
• Control
• Flexibility
• Royalty

This is must-watch interview for anyone interested in writing a book or in the publishing industry.
