E-Book Update

Pete Hamill, Print Holdout, Goes Direct to E-Book - "It makes perfect sense that Pete Hamill, 75 years old, chronicler of vintage New York City and newspaper tabloids and boozy Greenwich Village literary haunts, prefers print books to electronic.

Far more surprising is this: His next book will skip print altogether and be published only as an e-book."

Good for him! I read his Hard Case Crime book, "The Guns of Heaven", in one single day.

Does Hamil qualify as a "best-seller", though? Konrath has been predicting a best-selling author will do a straight-to-ebook deal and I wonder if this qualifies....
