Self-publishing is the future — and great for writers, article.
The only sampling bias is that these writers responded to a thread I started titled: “The Self Published Authors I Want to Hear From.” I wanted to know how many forum members were making $100 to $500 a month. My suspicion was that it was more than any of us realized. Every response I received started with a variation of: “I’m actually making a lot more than that.”
I've long had a feeling that self-publishing made more sense than the traditional route. And after ebooks came around for real, this is ten times more so.
Of course it still takes work and talent to become a success. But digitisation if it has done anything, has levelled the playing field. And the only ones who don't benefit from a more level playing field are those who occupied the scarce high ground!
