A sign of our changing times

Do you want to be a writer?  Do you know someone who likes to write?  The barriers to getting published are dropping.  Dean Wesley Smith reports in Crossover Deals from Self-Publishing to Traditional:

Then Publisher’s Marketplace followed with the line:

“As everyone knows, originally self-published books made for a number of high-profile crossover deals in 2012–though in total numbers, we recorded 45 such deals in all.”

Of the 300 or so six figure deals that were reported to them in 2012, 45 were from books that started off self-published.

Kind of cool!
