This blog post has been a long time coming. Heck, any blogs from me have been a long time coming, but *cough* I digress. This is something that I have been commenting on in various Facebook groups, and quite passionately so.
Let’s discuss publishing, and in this case, indie publishing. Although, truth be told, I’ll be touching on both. I will hold no punches in what I am about to say, so brace yourself… reality is coming.
I’m sure you have all heard of indie publishing. Heck, it’s probably why you’re here right now, right? Because you’re an indie author, an aspiring author, or maybe you’re a traditionally published author, and you’re just curious as to what this post is about. Or maybe you just stumbled here, or like funny animated GIFs. In any case, welcome
As a side note, there is a really good blog about the ugly truths about book sales, and it follows a traditionally published author. But again, I digress.
Back on topic. Indie publishing is essentially self-publishing, but with less stigma.
We live in a wonderful world of technology, where you can surpass the traditional publishing world to publish your amazing novels that should be best-sellers in the NY Times and take over the world! I mean, it’s the stuff of dreams, right?
Yes, it sure is the stuff made of dreams. So, you can now publish your own book! That manuscript that you slaved over, finished so proudly, and are ready to share with readers world-wide, can now be released!
