The pseudonymous Data Guy—not the fellow shown on the screen here—was among the stars of Digital Book World.
TeleRead’s Susan Lulgjuraj later put together a memorable interview where DG explains his methods at length. As a whiz with publishing stats, Data Guy also delves into many other topics, including the pain that Big Five publishers will suffer if they are not more forward-thinking in their treatment of writers. Drop by Sunday for the full interview. No, “everything” doesn’t actually include his real name. But you’ll find plenty else.
Note: Thanks to a WordPress slip—mine—Susan’s Q. & A. was prematurely on the TeleRead site for a very brief period. Believe me, the final results are worth waiting for.
