Garrison on Self-Publishing

“And if you want to write, you just write and publish yourself. No need to ask permission, just open a website. And if you want to write a book, you just write it, send it to Lulu.com or BookSurge at Amazon or PubIt or ExLibris and you’ve got yourself an e-book. No problem. And that is the future of publishing: 18 million authors in America, each with an average of 14 readers, eight of whom are blood relatives. Average annual earnings: $1.75.”

From: “When everyone’s a writer, no one is: In a world where everything’s free on the web, what will happen to publishing” by Garrison Keillor, May 25, 2010, The Baltimore Sun
