Why Konrath’s EAF library business won’t work

Link to Digital Reader article here.

EAF will do is make some chump change for a handful of bestselling authors. For the rest, it is essentially giving away their books for free, to be endlessly pirated. Libraries are not interested in the general masses of indie ebooks that have no track record, no vetting by recognized review sources like Lib. Jnl. and no significant number of patrons asking for them. That is no different than trad published books at the lower levels. Indies think librarians are prejudiced against them; no, librarians are against books that don’t have the credentials to warrant spending acquisitions money.
