6 J. A. Konrath Quotes about You

” I don’t care what people are saying about me, good or bad, in blogs or on Twitter or in the media. There will always be people who don’t like you and don’t like your books. Ignore them. “


” We all need to focus on our writing. Because the millions of readers out there don’t care about your blog. “


” The business model – where books can be returned, and where a 50% sell-through is considered acceptable – is archaic and wasteful. Writers get small royalties, little say in how their books are marketed and sold, and simple things like cover and title approval are unheard of unless you’re a huge bestseller. “


” Writers aren’t in competition with one another. It isn’t a zero sum game. If you have a good book, a good cover, a good product description, and a low price, you can sell well. “


” E-books are preferable to paper, they can be delivered instantly. In many cases, they’re cheaper, you can buy them with the press of a button. “


” We each take up one virtual space per title… Virtual shelf life is forever. In a bookstore, you have anywhere from a few weeks to a few months to sell your title, and then it gets returned. This is a big waste of money, and no incentive at all for the bookseller to move the book. “
