Laird Harrison

Self-publishing makes the most sense in a niche market. I once met someone who wrote a book about managing a dental practice. Dentists don't learn how to run a business in dental school, but they have to do it when they graduate. He charged over $100 for each book, and they were in high demand. On the other hand, self publishing a book for a general audience -- a novel for example -- is idiocy.


Idiocy? I beg to differ... Greekly, anyway. The original meaning of "idiot" was "someone who stays home and does not participate in the democracy of Athens." In getting your book out there (click on Laird's name to go to his novel), you are definitely participating in the revolution! Congratulations, comrade.
