I have mentioned this in a previous post that self publishing is the term on everyones lips in the literary market. It is a term I am becoming acquainted with, whether or not that is a good thing I do not know, but it is a thing, and I predict that there will be a movement toward this field of publishing.
Even though there is a lot of backlash coming from major retailers, the rewards to self publishing in todays market when things need to be at the touch of finger, or click of a mouse, Amazon’s self publishing in their ebook format has many perks.
I believe that self publishing will grow, especially in the online market for ebooks, and I think it will become a platform for major publishers to find really good writers that they want for themselves.
As an aspiring writer, self publishing might become an option for me in the future and it is a truly terrifying prospect.
What do you think about self publishing?
Will it become a huge thing in the upcoming years? Or do you think major publishers will continue to try to shut it out?
