Sorry, I'm not sure I can say this, but he comes across on the pompous side. Some professionals just can't leave their elitism where it belongs ... in the grabage can.Mike McIntyre said:From New York Times Sunday Book Review, May 22, 2011:
This is common sense, but it's also positive.Today, though, self-publication crackles with possibility as never before.
This is pure ego. And yes, I cut a part out, which is why I added the elipses. What I cut off wasn't redeeming either. It was just him clarifying that "a writer like me" refers to midlist writers.I wouldn't necessarily recommend this to a first-time author. A self-published book is almost certainly going to end up on the digital slush pile, with fewer readers than the average blog post. But for a writer like me... self-publishing seems to make a lot of sense at this point.
