A civil conversation on self-pubbing v. trade pubbing

[dropcap]O[/dropcap]f course, it’s biased toward self-pubbing, but I think it’s hard not to be in this day.

It started with this post. The reply this post is linked to is from Laura Kaye, bestselling romance hybrid author. The conversation takes place mostly in the comments, but reading the post is certainly important to understand where the conversation came from. The key take-away in the conversation is, in my opinion, that both have their place. To deny one over the other is a fool’s choice.  What matters in both is the author’s best interest.

And I appreciate that the conversation between Steven Zacharius and self-pubbers around the globe didn’t fall apart.
