The surprise was that Eisler turned down the deal and decided to tackle self-publishing instead. “I know it’ll seem crazy to a lot of people, but based on what’s happening in the industry, and based on the kind of experience writers like you are having in self-publishing, I think I can do better in the long term on my own.” Why eBooks, Why Now? – Don’t go niche-hopping. 1. 2.
