Self-publishing article on HuffPo
Hi everyone! I have a new article up at the Huffington Post:
The Self Published Authors Standing On Your Lawn
Self-published authors, we are led to believe, are scheming “writers” who aren’t good enough to land an agent or a publisher, have no interest in improving the craft–and show no respect for that craft–eschew editing they are badly in need of, and, in short, don’t deserve to be published, period.
In contrast, traditional big market publishers are producers of high quality curated works that have been thoroughly edited and expertly marketed, and are in every sense superior for it.
There are a lot of problems with both of these concepts, and we’ll be touching on them, but first I want to point out that these two aren’t even remotely like one another.
