Literary Agents Debate J.A. Konrath’s Amazon Encore Deal

Today Publishers Weekly asked a number of agents what they think about J.A. Konrath’s recent deal with AmazonEncore.

The article featured a variety of comments, but eBooks and evolving modes of distribution dominated the article.

Here’s an excerpt, quote from literary agent Ira Silverberg: “Certain authors will feel they’re doing well in schemes like this.

Let’s see if we remember who those authors are in a few years.”
