I did a blog post last night about my views and personal thoughts, after reading on a book reviewer’s site……
“they won’t read books by self-published authors.”
Yeah, I felt the same when I read that. I was traditionally published before self published, I have a strong view point on this statement by book reviewers. You can read the blog post here, which also lead to a conversation with Sascha in the comments. Interestingly she asked what she could do to help support self-published authors? Even though from what I understand, she has had a bad experience with some. Well I dunno? I guess try to keep reading work from self published authors.
But if you’re a self published author what could help improve the image self published authors have? And how can book reviewers support indie authors? Rather than have a hostile board-line discriminatory attitude toward those that do self publish. Oh and guys please what is your view on “vanity publishing” is that what it’s called these days? I did laugh have you heard this?
I have just a few things/ideas on this poll, add your own in the comments and do give feedback. It would be great for Sascha and I to hear all of your POV’s, as I am only good at talking up for myself… as you can probably tell 🙂

Back again. Vanity publishing is the original term for self-publishing. Wikipedia says it’s been around since 1941: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vanity_press
I may visit the idea of indie author outreach on my blog later today or tomorrow after I think about it more. I didn’t realize that there was a big problem with book bloggers not reading indie.
