Topic for Self Publishing Article Links

It is possible we could also use a topic thread for self publishing article links. Here is an interesting link from Forbes

This is a fascinating article, wondo. Rather long, but I thought it worth spending ten minutes on it. The self-publishing controversy brings to my mind the anguish of the linotype operators when desktop publishing entered the field and put them out of work, the general opinion being that it looked like an "anyone can do this" method of producing copy.

It is a good article. My belief is that self publishing is sort of like a marriage and not a one night stand. I think success is from commitment. It takes patience and a willingness to forego instant gratification. The writer that sticks with it, constantly tries to improve their writing and other pertinent skills like book covers will eventually find success. If you just stick one book up there, unless you are very lucky, you won't sell much. That is just my opinion, anyway.

Almost no article on self-publishing that appears in a traditional print publication is worth the time to read.
They are generally 5 years behind the curve, often mentioning debates that are long sense over.
Print journalists, quite naturally when you think of it, have a suspicion if not horror of self-publishing. Who are they without their positions? Where will it all end?
I think it was Cory Doctorow who said that the very act of reading about the internet reality in print is oxymoronic, and he's right.

What's valuable to self publishers is not outside pundits trying to come to grips with it, it's people who are actively publishing discussing the trade.
