This guy deserves recognition as an internet pioneer.
I WANT YOU TO BUY HIS NEW BOOK
Scott Sigler was one of the first (if not THE first) unpublished authors to distribute his work in audio form for "free" on the internet, under a creative commons type license.
I have listened to several of his books... namely "Eathcore", "Ancestor" and "Infected".
I would recommend them to anyone who isn't offended by language and violence. You can get them from his site www.scottsigler.com or www.podiobooks.com
"Infected" has been published as a paper novel, and can be purchased from amazon or high street stores... it is currently being considered for a film.
So buy infected if you wish, buy PLEASE pre-order the sequel "Contagious" which is to be released on the 30th December 2008.
How cool would it be for a podcast novelist to be the number one bestseller on the hardback fiction list?
In my opinion, very cool indeed. This is how art should be marketed in the internet age. Give your stuff away in one form, accept donations if it is any good, and charge for it in other formats. Much better than allowing editors to dictate what we get to consume.
If you agree, please buy the book.
