I am emphatically not a self-published author: I did one short story collection on my own, made a goodly sum, but got no writing done for six months and realised that my publishers are definitely earning their keep. But this week, I launched a Kickstarter to sell pre-orders of my self-produced audiobook of my next novel, Attack Surface (the third volume in my bestselling Little Brother series), because the alternative was selling out to Amazon in ways that I simply can’t accept.
