I know, talking about this is verging on beating a dead horse... what a horrible expression that is. I appologize. Try 2: Talking about this is verging on being redundant and loosing the couple of loyal readers I have. (Hi husband, hi Mom!)
(Note to self: look up origin of horrible expressions such as the horse thing and include in a future blog.)
Indie vs Traditional Publishing
Here’s a link to another view on traditional vs indie publishing. This is a hot topic right now, and I think it's definitely worthwhile to read another perspective on it.
Dear Nathan Bransford, thank you once again for supplying a great blog post that I can pass on to my loyal readers.
Hello loyal readers! (i.e. my husband and mother).
The conference I recently attended this was a topic that dominated the break-out sessions. The masses tended to lean towards self-publishing and for reasons mentioned in a previous post, I’m a little surprised. see post here
I fully understand that there are thousands of great writers out there who have little to no luck getting their books published, and to that I say, great! You now have an alternative – I’m so glad there is a way to get your art out there and share it with the world. You are the exception to the rule.
I maintain that traditional publishing has great advantages over indie. Especially for you first and second time writers who are very very green to the business (just like me)
Whether you agree with me or not, I suggest reading the article. Who knows, you may learn something.
