Publishing/Writing: Insights, News, Intrigue

06/13/2009

John Austin Replys to Mark Morford:


Good luck with “Daring Spectacle.” You hit the nail on the head with the current upheaval in the publishing industry; AND self-pub is gaining huge and immediate credibility due to technology and the fact that the old publishing industry got to the point where they asked author’s to do their work for them! Old Publishing SOLD OUT…only pushing and marketing books by celebrities for the main part (most written by ghost writers!). Good writing and artistry be damned! Not to mention the skimpy split they would give author’s (the friggin creators, mind you, that allowed them to make $$ in the first damn place!).

You’re right, self-pub and keep 96% of your profits!
