More on Self-Publishing

Over in the LiveJournal for Bakka-Phoenix Books, Canada's oldest science-fiction specialty store, the wise and wonderful Chris Szego, manager of same, posted this open letter:

Dear Writer who, because the publishing industry is so tough to break into decides to publish her novel on her own, or believes his interests are best served by self-publication, or is truly, truly convinced her/his work is too original/daring/polka-dotted for 'regular publishers',

You're wrong.

PS: We're not dissing your writing. It's the distribution that matters.

Exactly, Chris. Exactly!

(And she's added a very good primer on distribution.)
