#IndieChat – SelfPub Metrics and Hugh Howey’s Controversial Report

The entire publishing world has their knickers in a twist since Hugh Howey released his report on Author Earnings last week.  The chat transcript is here. We even had Hugh Howey, HM Ward and a lot of other folks stop by. 

According to Howey’s report “Indie authors are outselling the big five. That’s the entire big five. Combined. Indie and small-press books account for half of the ebook sales in the most popular and bestselling genres on Amazon.”

The report has caused a huge debate across the interwebs between every publishing pundit and their mother, uncle,

So, we’re dedicating tomorrow’s Twitter #indiechat to chatting about the report.  Do you agree with it? How do your numbers stack up against Howey’s analysis?

Howey is also doing a survey for authors with Author Earnings Survey Results from over 900 authors. 

Also, we’re super excited to announce that Hugh Howey himself will be a guest on #indiechat in a few weeks. So you can talk to him and ask him questions directly.
