really liked it
Read in January, 2010

I don't always agree with what Joe Konrath says - I find he comes across as more of a chancer than a writer; almost like a snakeoil salesman in the old west. However there is no hiding the fact that his blog is indispensable for anyone interested in the modern publishing industry. And I have read one or two of his books and he certainly knows how to tell a story. It's just a pity that he seems to have an axe to grind with traditional publishing, and this is clear with many of the articles contained within this book. Still you pays your money and you takes your choice and there are some great articles contained within the electronic covers.

This book collects together the best articles from his blog and I would recommend it to anyone interested in the mechanics of modern publishing.
