Ahh yes. the old debate of " #indiebooks can't possibly be good enough" compared to trad-pub.
🙄🙄
Come the fuck on.
Like... really. Can these self-important verbose parsnips come up with *anything* more original than this?

A thread. Again.

I've been hearing the #selfpub vs. trad-pub debacle for the entire 15 years that I've been writing.
It's been bullshit every second of those 15 years.

Frankly, I love (sarcasm) how trad-pub authors think that they're somehow better than their #selfpublished counterparts.

Reality: Traditional publishing will make everyone but the author rich first. How much do trad-pub authors get from their book's sell price? 15%.

#selfpub authors get 70%.

Also, the majority of trad-pub authors never get off the mid-list.

What's a mid-list, you ask?
