Publish your book online

Leo Laporte and Amber interviewed Scott Sigler on [email protected] episode 17, “There’s something wrong with the sheep.” This really inspired me to someday publish a book online, and I think you should definitely do it right away if you have the time to do so. And let me know if you do! I’d be happy to promote it. I highly recommend to this section of the podcast, about 12 minutes long:

I cut it from the 1 hour full-length [email protected] podcast using Audacity. One thing that’s really interesting is that they released their books online for free. In the case of 37signals, their book is released on the honor system, in that there’s nothing preventing people from distributing the book for free (or stealing it).

Scott Sigler’s book, Ancestor, sounds really awesome. I’m sure there are other authors out there who are similarly talented, but just can’t be bothered to persuade a publishing company to accept them. Now it’s really easy to publish a book yourself, and you might even get better results!

What did you think of it? Are you going to write and publish a book? Why or why not?
