A co-worker sent me a link to the following article from the Wall Street Journal Online. It is a great read for self-published authors and writers aspiring to be published. Any reader of this blog knows that the rise in self-publishing is a trend that I am really excited about and think that the growth will be incredible. One thing I liked about this article is while it tells the story of the successes it also takes the reader back down to reality with some more Earth bound numbers. I can say for myself that my sales have not lit my bank account on fire, but I can see things trending upwards. I will be beyond happy to come back to this article in a year and see how my experience fits in.
