The Self-Publishing Paradigm

The Writer's Manifest

When I used Kickstarter to help fund The Shulim Cycle: Book of Dahlia, I reached out to various social media outlets to try to get support for the project. In one of the forums, I received a little bit of feedback that both amused me and saddened me. I still keep it with me now because, any sting having faded, I still find it amusing. My book, my precious beloved novel, was just another “penny dreadful”. I was nothing more than another silly girl who fancied herself a writer.

Now, I love my “penny dreadful”. But the comment did bring something to mind that I have wrestled with since deciding to self-publish. It is the idea that a self-published novel is not as good as a novel from a major publishing house. It is not professional or polished.
