Self-Publishing: A Better Bet All Round?

Robert McCrum writing in the Guardian UK this morning is unconvinced that 2010 is a bad time to be a writer. He suggests this assertion comes particularly from authors who have been involved in the traditional publishing world since the 1980’s. McCrum goes on to say that the outlook for self-published authors presents evermore promising opportunities.

“Self-publishing has now become much easier and more affordable, a better bet all round. Of course, it is not the same, I concede, as working through an established imprint, or an influential corporate house such as Penguin or HarperCollins. But how much longer will these giants survive, at least in their present form?”
