If you're convinced that you're right, by all means go ahead and do as you think best.Talking down to me and calling me Sweetie doesn’t feel like you’re trying to help. I've been at this for a long time. I've been agented and I've published in the small press but I've yet to land a deal with a major publisher. I've seen many friends and colleagues succeed, and I've always been happy for their success, but that doesn’t mean I'll concede their work was "better" than mine. There is an alternative to this ecosystem, which you've admitted yourself is fragile. Of course I too am a lover of good books and want to see the literary landscape thrive. I'm just trying to decide for myself whether I want to explore self publishing. I don’t see why I'm being vilified for that.
