Just typing the words I for Indie gives me a frisson of excitement at how much the publishing world has changed in the last decade. But going it alone is not for the faint-hearted and especially not nowadays. Despite the hyoe that hits our email boxes every day, very few of us are going to earn $1000 dollars a day from our e-books.
We may be able to provide the quality but without a backlist ready to self-publish, can we provide the necessary quantity to ramp up sales. Are we writing in a niche thousands want to read?
Dana Beth Weinberg clearly points out the trouble with indie math. And the figures may make the struggling Indie feel even more insecure. A lot of us have very few sales indeed.
