Do you have a minute to talk about self-publishing?
No, don’t go! I’m not asking because I want you to buy one of my books. Unless… you want to buy one of my books?
Hahaha kidding! No, I want to talk about self-publishing because it’s awesome, and I don’t think we say that often enough.
I’m being completely serious here. There has been a lot of back-and-forth over the past year vis-à-vis the merits of self-publishing vs. traditional publishing, and the agency model vs. whatever Amazon is doing, and so on, and it all sounds very complicated, obscure, and strangely hyperbolic. The people partaking in these arguments are, generally, fairly intelligent, which only makes everything even more complicated, somehow, because intelligent people are very good at looking at a simple thing and making it less simple.
So this is the simple version: you can write something today, and sell it to anybody in the world tomorrow.
