SF author Phyllis K. Twombly on self-publishing

While reading “Self-Publishers Flourish as Writers Pay the Tab,” a recent article in The New York Times, I immediately thought of Canadian science fiction author Phyllis K. Twombly. The self-published author of the Martian Symbiont series of SF novels (Been Blued (2007), Martian Blues (2008), third novel forthcoming), Twombly provided excellent insight into the world of self-publishing in a recent two-part post on her blog (Part 1, Part 2). As Louise Burke, publisher of Pocket Books, said recently, self-publishing is
“no longer a dirty word.”
