Write and publish with love and fury.

Eisler & Konrath Vs. Hachette

Via Scoop.itWriting and reading fiction

I’m trying to get some writing done, and I really feel like I’ve said all there is to say about the publishing industry and going indie. But then several alert readers emailed me to say Hachette created an internal memo to explain to its employees and customers why it’s still relevant.   I was published by Hachette, and for the most part I enjoyed working with them. They’re good people and dedicated professionals.   But boy, their memo is a giant bowl of steaming fail. And they dropped the ball when it came to me, too. More on that below.   So I called up my friend Barry Eisler and begged him to convince me to just let it go and not do a blog post about how silly the memo is.   Instead, Barry read the memo and said, come on, we should just fisk this sucker together.
