    I think it’s really interesting too, Shayne. I love seeing people get out there and have successes with non-traditional methods. I don’t think it’s going to work for everyone but it’s definitely encouraging to know it’s possible.

    I agree that it’s definitely not something that will work for everyone. For one thing, a large percentage of self-published stuff is crap, thanks to a lack of craft on the part of the writer. They pound out a manuscript, don’t take the time to have it edited properly, throw on a cover that looks like it was designed by a ten-year-old, and put it up for sale. Those folks aren’t going to do very well, IMO.

    But for the people who educate themselves about their craft and their business, who put in the work, who learn from constructive criticism, and who are willing to get quality cover art even if it costs them some money, indie publishing could definitely be the way to a good career as a writer.

    I’m looking forward to seeing where indie publishing goes from here.
