In other news- what did you guys blog about this week? I know one blog post that caught a lot of attention was the ebookexperiment by Shelli Johannes Wells. – thus leading me to this week’s topic of bloffee conversation: Have you guys noticed a definite shift in mentality when it comes to self ebook publishing these last few months? I know in my mind, self publishing has almost completely lost its taboo connotations. And I think it can definitely work out in some author’s favor if the circumstances are right. To be truthful, after years spent in the query trenches, self publishing is looking very tempting and I’m definitely gathering information and keeping an eye on Shelli’s ebook experiment.
That said- I have to wonder WHY traditional and self publishing are being compared like they’re in some kind of competition. Why must one win the other over? Isn’t there room for both?
Any other big themes you noticed around the blogosphere this week? Be sure to pass the orange juice and have a great weekend everyone!:)
