Write and publish with love and fury.

Writers: Are you skeptical about self-publishing?

As you can see from a couple of posts ago, I was very enthused with the symposium put on by The Writer’s Union of Canada. I still am. However, there was so much useful information for writers (especially if you’re interested in self-publishing) that I can’t do it all in just one post. It’s worthy of many posts, and not all of them are mine. For instance, as you may have gathered, it’s official, I have a man crush on Ross Laird’s brain.

When someone else makes a great argument, I feel pretty stupid piling on with nothing else to add. (Hold on to your shorts. I still have plenty to say, but we’re going to jump to one of Ross Laird’s links in a moment.)

Why? Because the essential question before I follow up with anything else is this:

Is this the right time for you to jump to self-publishing?

Is traditional publishing so damaged it might even be crazy not to self-publish?

Now you need to click here to read Ross Laird’s short essay over at A Newbies Guide to Publishing for the answer.

I know when to shut up and let someone else make a brilliant summation to the jury.
