  1. Thanks for the mention guys- I just finished listening to the Podcast.

    Christina illustrated a really good point with her tirade on “50 Shades of Gray”. Quality isn’t always an issue with self-published ebooks. The story seems to be more important, as 50 Shades’ sales show.

    I can’t urge folks enough to take back up the pen and write if you’ve ever wanted to. Self-publishing is so easy, there’s really no reason to not give it a try. You might get wildly successful like 50 Shades, or just make a few readers happy. But at least you’ll have gotten your work out there, without having to fight through the publishing slushpiles of old.
