My mentor, Holly Lisle, has authored 30 novels with over a million in print. She has made the astounding decision to stop using publishing houses. Starting with her next book she will self-publish. Wow. Is this a trend? Will authors un-stop the cork and let self-publishing gush through the dam? If you have to do your own marketing anyway, why not get the whole pot of profits instead of a spoonful? Will publishing houses and agents follow the footsteps of the travel industry? Time will tell.
