What a response we got from Julia's guest post yesterday! We stirred folks up, for sure, and guest speaker Joe Quirk spoke to Redwood Writers Club yesterday on just these subjects. Lots of people who have written good books are (or have been) getting screwed (metaphorically, we trust) by publishers and even agents who are supposedly representing them, and are sick and tired and not gonna take it anymore!
The question is, what can we do as a far-flung group to help ourselves and each other? Especially with that all-important distribution problem? Is POD really the wave of the future, and since anybody can do it, how do we remove the stigma it has gotten from the publishing of so many bad books?
Do we all need to become reviewers? Even that is subjective.
