For these authors, doing a few traditional publishing deals is a great idea. Some manuscripts can be thought of as loss-leaders. The biggest disappointment I see from hybrid writers is that they go into a partnership thinking a major publisher knows more than they do about selling books. How did you make that decision and what factors should authors consider? HUGH: I experimented. I tried site Unlimited.
Then I pulled out and went wide for a year. Then I went back to site Unlimited.
I get more readers being in KU than being on all retail outlets. site ebooks are available to every reader on pretty much any device that has a screen. If someone makes a personal decision not to shop with site, then I lose that reader. What are the findings that surprised you the most? And if you should share one piece of data with every author, what would it be?
HUGH: The most surprising piece of data to me was how small the overall pie the Big 5 publishers have. All the media coverage of the book business focuses on what these five companies report, but they pay out less than half of what authors make.
So for authors or anyone who cares about authors to listen to coverage about the publishing industry, they are listening to a minority of that industry. When we look at book prices, and total sales by publishing house, and earnings by retailers, all of that noise hides the fact that traditionally published authors take home a sliver of the sales.
That is why the Big 5 can seem to rule the roost when it comes to earnings, but be insignificant when it comes to author pay. And I care far more about authors than I do publishers. JEFFREY: Finally, I know you have given some thought to the issue of artificial intelligence, which stands to impact our lives as much or more than computers and the Internet during the second half of the last century.
Do you expect to see an AI-written bestseller during your lifetime?
HUGH: Not during my lifetime, no. Unlike many who write in my genre, I tend to be very conservative in my guesses about the future. Change comes more slowly than we like to hope it might. Computers are learning how to speak.
