Today I posted acquisitions on the LPI blog, and talked a bit about how even some of the most staunchly determined Big-6-or-Bust authors are now coming around to the possibilities of self-pubbing or going with a smaller press. One of the best comments I've seen on this topic was along the lines of, "The whole point of writing is so other people can read what you wrote. Self-publishing or epublishing accomplishes that, whereas waiting for your big break does not." Another point came up--even if an author sold her newest manuscript, all those others currently residing in Rubbermaid homes under the bed/on her hard drive, would still stay right there. So she might as well go for it and at least get those earlier books out there.
I love the way this is going!
