A group of writers from the Chicago Writers Association have been kicking around a discussion about self-publishing and traditional publishing. Not exactly a new fresh subject these days, I know. So much talk about the way to go for an author with a manuscript, and even more talk about readers – how do they really want to read an author’s work? Paper, digital bytes?
I saw this in the NY Times this morning…
If you are a writer, looking for a publisher or an agent, this story is worth a read. It’s not the typical of the publishing world these days – but, it is a sign, I believe, of how the change has come and is likely never going to reverse itself, of how publishers are rethinking their existence, and of how self-publishing has taken on new and interesting hues, and the colors just keep on changing.
