Boyd Morrison’s recent deal with Simon and Schuster after uploading his book "The Ark" to Kindle proves that self-publishing isn’t all that bad after all.

Boyd Morrison’s "The Ark" received such widespread success on Kindle that Simon and Schuster inked a two-book deal with Morrison that will put his works in a traditional ink-and-paper format rather than a digital one.

To our knowledge, this is the first time a digital self-published author has been offered a traditional book deal. Congratulations, Boyd Morrison! Stats for E-Books to Book Deals Trending: Older & Mild
