Erik Wecks, a bestselling sci-fi writer and Wired.com blogger, made an amazing chart that compares two publishing models: traditional and indie.
The latter one is analyzed in two phases: before and after the explosion of the internet.

- how does the model work
- benefits for the author
- benefits for the reader
