    I’ve listened to many podcasts over the last couple of years and so far am most captivated by yours which I hope will translate into not just popular success but also financial success once that has lead to your being picked up by the publishing industry. Of course the previous Time article makes it sound like that industry and much of the opportunity to make money from witting is vanishing but I personally hope and think (based on no industry knowledge) that it will continue long and strong enough for you to be able to make a carer of writing if that is what you want to do though I hope you also continue podcasting which is what keeps me entertained, intrigued and alert during my long daily commute.

      Dan I always enjoy your insight thanks for taking the time to comment.

      I think you and I got something different out of the article. I think what the article is really trying to say is that the publishing companies are changing as the mediums in which we receive and pass along content change. The traditional method of getting an agent, printing your book, and selling it in a store like Barnes or Borders is coming to an end. (I don’t think its going anywhere soon). People like Chris, myself, Scott Sigler, Mur Lafferty and J.C Hutchins are changing the industry by ignoring the model that revolves around money. We put content out there for free hoping to turn you fans to us as a brand. For example, many people have enjoyed The House Of Grey. Because of this I’m hoping that you all will take the time to listen to my next book, Tournament of Blades. As you start to get engrossed into my world I’m hoping that will cause you to buy a copy of my book and pass the excitement on to friends and family. Now don’t get me wrong, I want to make money just like the next guy that is the ultimate goal for Chris and I to make a living off of this project; but even if this story goes nowhere and people like yourself are the only ones that continue to download my story, I’m in this for the long haul. I will continue to write and tell my stories regardless of if I make money on them. (Hey I do have a law degree after all.) The publishing industry is hard. It is like any entertainment industry. Regardless of what happens though, you can know that Chris and I are going to keep doing what we do. We will provide a way for you guys to buy our stuff. If you like it and want to buy it, sweet. We love you for it. If you don’t, that’s ok too.
