Self-publishing Tidbits

News today broke of yet another Author Solutions partnership between ‘self empowerment’ publisher, Hay House. As you may recall, this comes after similar partnerships over the past year with Harlequin and Thomas Nelson, which brought on quite a bit of criticism throughout the industry.

Like it or not, self-publishing proves again to be on the move, as reported in a recent New York Times article: “But times have changed, and radically. Last year, according to the Bowker bibliographic company, 764,448 titles were produced by self-publishers and so-called microniche publishers. (A microniche, I imagine, is a shade bigger than a self.) This is up an astonishing 181 percent from the previous year.” Be sure to check out the comments section, beginning with the insightful first response.
