Thoughts On Self-Publishing And The Responsibility Of Indie Writers

Chuck Wendig has done a brilliant job in summarizing my thoughts on the endless self-published versus traditional route debate and how we, as writers, must take responsibility for our role in shaping the future.  Self-publishing is not taken seriously enough by some of the authors who choose the route and as a result, everyone suffers for it.  As an indie writer (by choice; I’ve never queried and may not ever do so), I feel it is important to treat my work with the attention and critical lens I would give a submission to a publishing house – perhaps even more attention, given the stigma.  I encourage you all to read the posting and ensuing comments.
