If you’ve been reading this blog, you know there has been quite a debate recently about the value of self-publishing versus traditional publishing. It is an interesting dialogue and it is probably clear what I think about self-publishing. It is a viable option that simply provides authors and readers more opportunity and choice.
This coming February I will be addressing this topic in a seminar at the San Francisco Writer’s Conference. The title of my seminar is, “What good does it do to die with a manuscript in your drawer?‘ After all, the goal of writing is getting published, not just creating a manuscript. Self-publishing makes that possible for so many more writers. I can’t see how that is wrong or bad.
