When I find an author (or musician, actor, director) I like, I definitely go on a spree of consuming all of their work...which raises a question, before I go out and buy all the Tyler Jones I can find: what's the best way for people to buy books, from the standpoint of the author actually making money? Is there a payout difference between Kindle/print from Amazon/in store Barnes & Noble?

Thanks for this. I read Burn The Plans based on an earlier rec from you, and am now reading Criterium. My TBR pile owes a lot to you, and it’s what keeps me sane 😉

Thank you, both, for sharing such an engaging conversation; definitely piqued my interest in Tyler’s books. (So an additional, tentative, thank you, I guess?)

I’m amused that within your discussion of “focusing down on particular creators”, you don’t acknowledge looking into which artists your favourite artists also “focus down” on. Finding out which musicians a favourite musician loves (or writer, director, etc.) has always brought amazing treasures I wouldn’t have discovered on my own... very possibly soon to include Tyler?!

Anyway, going back to continue reading Only Forward for the eleventh time 🙃
