My response to Kelly’s Index (author) Efficiency published by TeleRead

Yesterday TeleRead published that response querying some aspects of Kelly Gallagher’s Index of Efficiency, a tool for assessing an author’s future viability (Ie. Whether to ‘keep’ or ‘throw’) that he outlined in a speech at the Digital Book World Conference  recently.

You can read that response here.

I did not attend that conference but read about it in TeleReads and Publishing Perspectives via Book2Book. 

Sometime this week they are intending to publish another piece on the “marketing/accountancy led publishing milieu” which is actually talking about the acceptability of complexity (challenging readers) stimulated by a quote from Umberto Eco.
