Was this an in-person lecture, or is it something online that you can link to? I've seen nothing on his site about how agency pricing is helpful for authors under the aegis of the Agency Six, only about how self-publishing authors can make a lot more money by, well, self-publishing their ebooks.

Won't be picking this up which is a shame because I generally like Christophers stuff but that word count at that price point just doesn't work for me. Much like when comics started pricing themselves at $2-3 per issue. The value just isn't there. It's like paying full price and the movie is only 30 minutes long.

It would be interesting to get a better look at the Talarians but not worth the premium.

It was a PM on Facebook. I don't keep them.

Re: First 20 Pages of The Struggle Within Avaiable on S&S.com

Christopher, if you read this post, I just wanted to say "congratulations". Your new eBook has convinced me to dip my toes back into the eBook waters. I am hoping this time goes a lot better than my first disastrous attempt when SCE first came out. I'm assuming the technology is a lot more stable, and the delivery systems are more robust, at this point in time.

I've enjoyed pretty much everything I've read of yours, so I don't want to miss out on this one. Not to say I didn't enjoy SCE... I did, I just switched to waiting for hard copy reprints for those. To be honest, the fact that this seems fairly stand-alone, and I'm not sure where it would be reprinted, probably contributes to my decision as well. (I also wanted Mere Anarchy and Slings & Arrows, but it seemed that they could logically each be reprinted in a single collection... although I am still waiting for Slings & Arrows.)

Now I just have to decide whether to buy it now and read it on the Kobo app on my PC, or wait until I can actually get a Kobo reader. I'm thinking I'll wait for the reader... I borrowed a reader from someone to try, and I liked reading from it a lot better than I liked trying to read those early SCE books on my PC.

This is actually a big sea change for me. After the results from my last attempt, I figured I'd never bother to try again.

Just thought you might like to know.

(Sorry, I know the review thread is more recent, but I didn't want to go in there for fear of spoilers.)

Yes - Amazon and Barnes & Noble both have their own reading software, while purchases from most if not all other vendors can be read using Adobe Digital Editions.
