In the writing world, there's an EPIC battle going on between those that are traditionally published and those that self-publish. I confess that my aim is to traditionally publish, as I long to see my name on bookshelves someday. However, I haven't yet ruled out e-publishing if I find myself heavily rejected. There are choices now for writers. Choices that weren't available years ago. More and more established authors have even dipped their toes into e-publishing, so the lines are being blurred. And that's a good thing.
Many of the blogs I follow are ripe with this very topic. A blogger displayed the following quote today, and I loved it...
"If you wrote something for which someone sent you a check, if you cashed the check and it didn't bounce, and if you then paid the light bill with the money, I consider you talented."
Who do you think said that? None other than Stephen King :)
