    NYT best-selling writer Barry Eisler turned down a two-novel, half-million-dollar deal in favour of slf publishing. Here's a conversation between Eisler and Joe Konrath.

    At the same time, Amanda Hocking - who made half a million dollars or more selling e-books in January alone - seems to have gone the other way by signing what's reported to be a four-novel, million-dollar deal. Here's her blog on the subject.
