In the three days since Mediactive was published here in PDF format, about 1,500 visitors here have downloaded the book, and many more have visited the Table of Contents, which connects to the HTML version. Far fewer have purchased the book, of course, but it’s selling — and I’ve barely begun the real marketing process, which will take place in the new year.

    I am on of those “far few” purchasers and I am proud of it. I am enjoying it and it’s worth paying for it.

    Just finished Mediactive on my iPad (via Kindle). I made lots of highlights and bookmarks which means I loved it. Best of luck bypassing the traditional publishing community, I wish you great success.
