A nice interview of self-publishing fantasy success David Dalglish over on David Gaughran’s blog. It includes some nice insights on “hybrid publishing” as well as a harrowing lesson about signing your rights away.
Fantasy author David Dalglish is a big name in the self-publishing world, but he’s on the cusp of something even bigger.
His path wasn’t easy. When David uploaded his first book, way back in February 2010, he was working in Pizza Hut.
The popularity of his books, and the speed with which he was able to publish them, meant that it didn’t take long before he was able to quit that job and write full-time.
David’s stellar sales (over 350,000 books to date) led to big offers from major publishers. But he wasn’t able to accept any of them – until recently.
David is here today to tell us more. Trust me when I say this is quite the story:
Hi David, thanks for agreeing to come along and speak with us today. I’ve been hoping to chat since you signed that big deal with Orbit a couple of weeks ago
