Self-Publishing-Erfolge werden kleingeredet – oft ohne sie in Relation zum Status quo des Buchmarkts zu setzen | Leander Wattig

"Insgesamt finde ich es schade, dass solche negativen Wertungen in der Wahrnehmung der Autoren die Chancen schmälern, welche im Bereich Self-Publishing liegen – gerade auch für Verlagsautoren, wie ich in der Präsentation gezeigt habe. Meinem Eindruck nach wissen zudem viele nachstrebende Autoren gar nicht, wie vergleichsweise wenig attraktiv der Autoren-Job im Status quo des klassischen Buchmarkts ist und denken dann beim Lesen der Self-Publishing-Zahlen samt Negativ-Betonung, dass dieser Bereich völlig aus dem Rahmen falle. Dem ist aber nicht so."

Nook version of War and Peace turns the word “kindled” into “Nookd” | Ars Technica

"The best explanation, we think, comes from a commenter on the blog, who says "This obviously wasn’t done by Barnes & Noble, but by the publisher who submitted the book to Barnes & Noble. They created a Kindle version of this public domain book first, realized they used ‘Kindle’ somewhere in their submission, and did a quick find-and-replace to change ‘Kindle’ to ‘Nook’—never once thinking it would affect the book’s text rather than just whatever they put in the title page.""

Fox, Ridley Scott nab film rights to self-published sci-fi series

"As traditional book publishers are increasingly signing up self-published authors, Hollywood studios are also looking to self-published books for their next blockbuster. Last month, Universal Studios and Focus Features acquired the film rights to erotic trilogy “Fifty Shades of Grey,” which was self-published before being snapped up by Random House’s Vintage. Now 20th Century Fox has acquired the film rights to “Wool,” a five-part science-fiction series by Hugh Howey."
