Mike and Mike talk more about the fight between Amazon and Hachette, continuing from Show 468 and including comments from your feedback via Facebook.
They talk more about how different authors are taking sides, how the monies are being distributed differently now than before, the different options available to authors (with publishers and going self-published) and things authors should be doing to sell their books and sell themselves.

Dragon Page Notes
As of December 2014, The Dragon Page is closed. No more episodes of "Cover to Cover", no more book reviews.
For those seeking more podcast options featuring only topics on reading and writing SF genre literature, we highly recommend Mur Lafferty's I Should Be Writing, Mur Lafferty and Matt Wallace's Ditch Diggers, SF Signal, Adventures in Scifi Publishing, and Writing Excuses featuring Brandon Sanderson, Dan Wells, Mary Robinette Kowal and Howard Tayler.
There will also continue to be some book reviews and news coverage at Slice of SciFi, but not as featured as it was here or at any of the above sites and podcasts. Whether a new books show comes along remains to be seen.
Thank you all for your opinions, conversations, contributions and support over the years.

Sean Jordan of DB Pro
Sean is the managing editor of DB Pro, an up and coming graphic novel (you can call them comics if you want) company doing some very interesting things. They take classic fantasy novels, such as George R. R. Martin's The Hedge Knight series as well as Dragonlance by Wizards of the Coast and the excellent Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan. High quality graphics and printing coupled with a wonderful adaptation has made for a phenomenal end product.
Gabriel Benson of Beckett Comics
Beckett Comics is doing some cutting edge work on new fiction, and their managing editor is Gabriel Benson. They've broken new ground with their Ruule - Ganglords of Chinatown series, as well as the graphic novels and official magazins for the Terminator:T3 franchise. These aren't your typical kiddie comics, kids. These guys put the "graphic" in graphic novel.
