BTW, how does one go about inserting the little icon 'new' with the little box around it when starting a new thread?
It goes on there automatically when there are new posts to a thread. You probably didn't see it for your post because it was yours.

Author George R.R. Martin sold 298,000 copies of his new novel on his FIRST DAY. Ebook sales were 110K. Of course, of the 170K hardcovers, I imagine a substantial number may be returned, unless his sell-through is much higher than the industry average.
Well, he also has four previous books and kept people waiting for the book for five years. I actually haven't seen any "media buzz" about the book that would be driven by the publisher, so I wonder how much of the credit for those sales really goes to them. I also wonder how many more eBook sales he would have had if it had been priced more reasonably.

Trad publishing has many advantages but this post doesn't appear to really be reflecting that.
Right, not having to pay for your own editing/cover/promotion is a big advantage that traditional publishing will always have over independent.

The TV show definitely exposed his books to many people who otherwise would never have touched them, so I think that was either some fantastic coincidence or maybe some clever planning. I guess we'll never know which. ;)
