I’ve loved Hugh Howey’s WOOL series, and I loved THE PLAGIARIST almost as much, and I love HIS story as well.
You have to like it when he comes out with something like WHY YOU SHOULD SELF PUBLISH in the Huffington Post.
The fact is that you should write because you love to write, and if you want to share your stuff, you can either submit it to tons of various editors and agents and magazine publishers and whoever else has decided that they are smart enough and perfect enough to sort out the good from the bad, or you can self-publish. I’ve chosen to self-publish and I’m not going to look back.
Whatever happens, happens.
