As an editor at a newspaper, I receive several review copies of books every week. Unfortunately, the self-published ones are often the first to go in my giveaway pile. But Hugh Howey is helping the self-publishing world shake off its stigma.
Little more than a year ago, Howey was just another sci-fi author trying to maneuver his way through the world of self-publishing after a not-so-successful experience with a small publishing house. Today, his book Wool is a smashing success with more than 300,000 copies sold in the U.S. alone and a film optioned by 20th Century Fox and Ridley Scott. He’s the face of a new era in publishing, and he’s just as surprised as anyone.
