How Self-Publishing Looks Now — and You Should Explore It
from Randy Stapilus, ASJA
From Oct. 30:
Self-publishing, especially on the ebook front, seemed to go through a gold rush a few years ago when ebook readers came out and a bunch of new and little-known writers sold tens of thousands of copies of their books.
If the rush has settled a bit, that doesn't mean good times are gone. Self-publishing has eased into a more stable environment, less exciting in some ways but closer to the sensibilities of professional writers. Self-published books are gaining in cachet, and becoming a useful piece of any writer's work efforts, often alongside working with traditional publishers. In recent years I've been producing books both ways, traditionally through a large publisher and through publishing books (written by myself and others) in my own company.
