As Thanksgiving rolls around (and the end of the year!), I am taking some time to reflect on the state of indie publishing. We all have a lot for which we can be thankful. The barriers to publishing have all but been eliminated. Authors enjoy increased creative control over their books and indeed the entire publishing process. There’s a business case to be made for indie publishing, with authors abandoning the traditional royalty model and realizing 100% of their net revenue instead. Access to information enables authors to produce quality books and avoid scams.
Yes, indie publishing is having a moment.
