Hugh Howey’s self-published sci-fi thriller, Wool, has sold hundreds of thousands of copies as an ebook. Last fall, Howey signed a seven-figure, print-only deal with traditional publisher Simon & Schuster, and Fox and Ridley Scott have acquired the film rights.
Our upcoming paidContent Live conference will highlight the changes in the book publishing business, and Howey exemplifies many of these trends. In this podcast, the second in a series featuring digital media creators who are successfully building their own independent empires, we talk to him about his success and what’s next.
paidContent Live takes place in New York on April 17.
