Self-publishing according to Chuck Wendig


Author and writing guru Chuck Wendig posted on his blog a good, intelligent, fun list of points to keep in mind when taking the self-publishing path.

Being self-published in this day and age is no longer the albatross around your neck it regrettably was — once, if you told people you were self-published, they’d look at you like you were a smelly old jobless hobo just come off a dusty boxcar with soupcan shoes and a hat made from a coyote skull. Though sometimes even still you get that look, as if the person listening is thinking, oh, you’re one of THOSE.

Called 25 Steps to Becoming a Self-Published Author, it is highly recommended, and I’m posting the link here for future reference.
