      • The following comment on Facebook is typical of the arrogant attitude within the publishing industry:-

        Actually, as a soon to be indy publisher… These are just good business practices? Like, I agree with almost all of these. Because business.

        I feel like so many authors that are publishing themselves, don’t realize that traditional publishing is obviously going to be business oriented. They are in the business of publishing authors that can prove they will sell, or have written books that have proved successful in the past. I don’t understand why this is a bad thing?

        Authors aren’t flocking to Amazon because these reasons are “pathetic”, they’re flocking to Amazon because their books don’t fit the commercial mold or they seek validation.

        If any of these reasons seem “pathetic”, then you’re probably not business minded, and definitely going to have problems marketing yourself.
