On an agent’s blog:
This makes me believe that the publishing world honestly is beginning to change. Speaking as someone who is finally getting up the courage to self-publish my books, that first sentence is the antithesis of what I’ve been internalizing for the last ten years or so. To read that in a “traditional” agent’s blog validates the route I’ve decided to take. Mind, I would have taken this route, anyway, as on a personal level I need more control over my career than traditional publishing would give me (which is also why I am a former librarian and currently an independent curator and exhibit designer in my other life), but it’s incredibly good to see this right now.
