Lift Me Up, Beat Me Down

Hello again!

Today I’m doing another guest post, this time over on writer Liza O’Connor’s blog. Here’s a preview of what you’ll find:

   Are you with a mainstream publishing company? Bad news, man. They steal all of your money. Very shady. Be careful.

Are you with an indie publishing company? Well, they aren’t going to do much for you. So much for being the next J.K. Rowling. Hopefully someone important will read your book and pass it on, or else you’re never going to get recognized.

You self-published? *wince* Oh…couldn’t get anybody to pick it up, huh? You know, there are no gatekeepers in the self-publishing world. There’s nobody there to tell you if you suck or not. Maybe you shouldn’t just jump in and self-publish? You’re tainting the pool. It’s already a dirty pool.

You haven’t published yet? WHY NOT. These days you can self-publish, you know. You don’t even need to mess with those corporate suits. Just do your own thing. But be careful. You’re going to have to promote yourself. Also, DON’T TAINT THE POOL.

Enjoy! And please feel free to let me and Liza know what you think about the topic with a comment!
