My reply to Jane Friedman’s Self Publishing – Future of Fiction

Contact me


i am an indie author and released my first book last month.

i decided to self publish since i did not have the time and energy to
go after gazillions of agents and e-publishing offered me the outlet to
create a product and release it to the market. i have tried to write the
best possible book i could and since i did everything myself, i tried
to do the best job i could in terms of editing and what not.

my book might not be perfect, it might not appeal to any one, it might not sell a single copy (thankfully it has sold a few).

my point in all this is i dared to raise my head above the parapet and be
prepared to be shot down. if my book is crap, the market will decide. if
my book is good, the market will have its say. i do not have any
middlemen, any one to hold my hand.

all self published authors are in my boat and i can only applaud their courage.

yes there are those whose product is not that good but again it is the
market that will teach them to go back and create a better product or
give up.
