So I talk to a lot of authors as I try to build my platform (that’s fancy talk for a base of readers/followers). Something that I often hear about is an Us vs Them struggle… usually on the part of indie writers (that’s code for self-published), at least in my experience. I thought I’d plop this article down.
Award winning blogger Nathan Bransford (take him serious, even if his name sounds like a cereal title, please) has a pretty good breakdown of the false dichotomy in that system… go ahead and give it a read. It’s important to remember (in both publishing and in our personal lives) that our differences don’t necessarily divide us. Different doesn’t always mean that one way is better than the next.
