The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Members post about their doubts and fears, discuss struggles and triumphs, and offer words of encouragement to others who are struggling.
I recently heard some news I found to be troubling. Samhain Publishing is closing its doors. I'm afraid they won't be the last. With the advent of self-publishing, small press is fighting to stay above water. I love Amazon, as a writer and a consumer. But they are quickly becoming the most powerful game in town, if not the only game in town. And the first string players appear to be either trad or self-published. What are your thoughts? Do you think small press can survive?
