Joe Konrath, Barry Eisler and Me

Not sure if anyone but authors and publishing types care about crap like this but I’m gonna talk about it any way.

Last week Barry Eisler, who writes the wildly successful John Rain thrillers, announced he’s turning down his half a million dollar advance to self-publish his future stuff on Kindle and through other self publishing routes. Joe Konrath, who also writes as Jack Kilborn, decided this a while ago and has been crazy successful being his own man.

I know Joe pretty well and he’s been a huge friend to me in the writing business. We did the novella “Planter’s Punch” which was a Kindle best seller for five months last year. We just signed an audio deal for the collection, too. I’ve met Barry a few times and he’s a really nice guy always willing to help up and coming writers..

These guys are heroes and role models for me so my next Duffy book, “The Vegas Knockout” will be published on Kindle and Createspace.

What’s that mean for readers?

Nothing really.

You can already get all my stuff on Kindle and other ebook distributors. If you’re not a Kindle person the book will be available in traditional paper too.

Just wanted to let you know I’m all in with the Kindle.

Look for the “The Vegas Knockout” in a couple of months.
