Writers Don't Sleep

Are you a non-sleeping writer like I am? There's something about the complete stillness and quiet of nighttime, after all have long gone to bed and even the dogs are snoring away that brings out the writer in us. It's finally quiet, we can gather our thoughts and write away. Yes, I see the clock ticking ticking ticking. But no matter. I've pulled all-nighters when on deadline, and as writers, you probably have too! That's all, back to writing and posting and all that keeps me up at night!

Vanity publishing becomes self-publishing and gains respect?

by catherine burr

Interesting article on Amazon and author earnings reports. I'd love to delve more into these numbers. For example, how do they ("they" being Amazon) define "small and medium" publishers? Obviously self-published or indies (as they're now called) could be as little as one title, but curious about the small and medium pubs.

It's fascinating, early on, to be published on certain online retail sites (like Fictionwise), publishers had to have a minimum of titles. You COULD NOT publish with only 1 or 2 titles. Wasn't allowed. And, you needed a certain number of authors, I believe it was the same at All Romance, but I could be mistaken. It's been awhile...

And back then, indie publishers were considered "indies" or small houses and were not considered self-published, because self-published authors were another breed and were considered "vanity" authors. Back then to be self-published was a disgrace. Now, it's becoming the norm.

Time's have changed. Now, it's prideful to be self-published, who are now called, "indies."

I've said it before and I'll say it again. Just because someone can write a book, doesn't mean they should publish a book.

Writers wanting to be published authors still need all the professional editors and quality team (not someone's cousin twice-removed and NOT a critique group), needed to make a quality book. That is, if they want it to sell.
