The Independent Author

I'd like to direct your attention to a great post by Nan Hawthorne on her Yesterday Revisited blog.

Nan writes:

Independent Authors GuildOnce upon a time there were two kinds of publishing… real and vanity. Either you were a good enough author to get published on the basis of your fine prose and skillful plotting and characterization.. or you were willing to pay someone to make it look like you had a Real Book. The world of electronic publishing has blown those times right out of the proverbial water. When someone asked me recently what a blog is, I replied, “It’s a way for anyone at all to publish an editorial.” That is the beauty of the web.. its populist opportunities. Anyone can publish. Anyone can be read.

Please read the rest at Nan's blog post "Sticking it to the (Publishing) Man" on Yesterday Revisited.
