Sell-Out or Next Phase?

Not too long back I read with great interest JA Konrath talk about the virtues of self-publishing and then I later read about him signing with Thomas & Mercer (  Barry Eisler joins the self-publishing band wagon and turns down big book deal.  Now he has jumped to the Amazon imprint for a six-figure publishing deal (  Aparantly this is the next big shift in publishing (

I am mildly confused. Is this back sliding or the next big thing ?

  1. I think ti depends. If you're the person on the receiving end of the check then it's The Next Big Thing, but if you're someone watching from afar then it's a sell out, LOL! ;)
