"My work may be garbage but it's good garbage." Mickey Spillane
The vanity / self publishing trend has gotten hotter and heavier recently with the launch of Harlequin Horizons.
The full text of RWA’s decision is here.
Victoria Strauss has made some strong comments about the situation.
It is becoming more and more important to distinguish RE-publishers from SELF-publishers.
I agree with Victoria that the self publishing bubble will have to burst soon. The economy is not going to be strong enough for the masses to continue to do it at high prices.
Lulu may keep going, but I am of the opinion that even there people are getting tired of the no win self publishing world.
