Self-publishing disappointment

http://accrispin.blogspot.com/2011/03/why-your-self-publishing-service.html  

Writer Beware (a group that exposes those who are scamming innocent/ignorant writers) often hears from self-published authors who are convinced they’re being ripped off by their self-publishing services–but it’s more likely that their expectations were unrealistic.

Kids, major publishers aren’t out to gleefully reject you – they WANT to publish good books. They’re just aware that the market is lacking. Self-publishing is certainly not going to change that fact.

And here’s a picture of a cat, as per usual – but with a bonus baby and CJ, as our family gets used to one another:

  1. Self-publishing is not something I fancy at all for myself and I’ll probably stick to getting published because a publisher wants me. Nonetheless, another good blog about writing for me to follow, thank you, you seem to add to my resources quite often.

    Baby CJ Cat picture so cute! 😀

      Bonnee: I know publishers get it wrong sometimes (or, you could argue, the market does) but I do think they know better than 99.9% of writers. because knowing the marekt is their job, after all.
