It seems that many writers feel that those who self publish are having a negative impact on the publishing business. Some of these disappointing comments mention that many would-be writers have nothing to say. Let’s assume that there is some truth to that, what does it really mean. If you have an idea for a book and decide to write it and self publish, how does that hurt anyone else? Wanting to do it is reason enough. Once the book or ebook is published, the market will decide if it has value.
Whether the books I choose to write become financial successes or total failures, all the choices, risks, and rewards are mine not those who choose to disparage books or self publishing because they don’t meet some perceived standard.
