I don’t care if some people are offended by this but I’m sick of this ‘us’ and ‘them’ thing, as if successful people or traditional publishers and the writers with them were the enemy or that self-publishers were the enemy. What the hell?
I am against bad writers. Period. I don’t care if you’re self-published, indie published or traditionally published. I don’t think it makes you any better if you identify yourself with one of these groups and wear it proudly like a badge. Get out of my way and give me a good book to read.
I’m looking for a good writer like those I’ve loved in the past and who I follow religiously whenever they put out a new book because I know I won’t be disappointed. Are you one of those? Then put your book where your mouth is and don’t bother me with this other crap.
