Bloggasm on Tor’s free e-book program

When Buckell opened a Bookscan account to track his sales he had to sign a nondisclosure agreement barring him from giving any specific numbers, but in a phone interview he asserted that the sales bump was significant enough not to have been a fluke.

I heard Cory Doctorow address this issue on Tuesday evening, and he says the same thing as Bloggasm.

My take away: The world book marketing is changing, and only those who change will survive.
