Writers' Ink at Caledon Public Library

Self-publication?

“Publishers are under immense financial pressures. They have to do more with less every day. But I’d still tell almost everyone who wants to build a long-term writing career to go the traditional route for the reasons outlined in the TechCrunch article, The eBook – Déjà Vu All Over Again?, and because it instantly legitimizes your work. It’s confirmation that you’ve reached a certain level of expertise and craft. I know there are a good many wonderful self-published books coming out every year, but look at the data in the (link above) TechCrunch piece; on average, authors do better from traditionally published books in the long run.”

From a WCYR interview with Phil Dwyer, author of ‘Conversations on Dying’
