Cray Cray… that’s all I can say. Well, no it’s not. I’m about to say a lot more.
Today I was meant to post an interview, but my life has been crazy busy. So much so my NaNo plans have slipped away. I haven’t been blogging *looks at time and whispers ‘sorry this post is so late*.
But that’s not the only craziness. I’ve also seen some behaviour online that I find, well, puzzling. And I’d like to throw it open to blog followers to comment on the topic. I’m not going to put links to the comments because that could add fuel to the fire.
I’m simply going to ask you a few questions and then comment on my own view. Your responses will help me determine if I live in a magical world with my head buried in the ground.
Is there a divide between traditional published authors/small press authors/self-published authors? Is there a divide between agented authors and non-agented authors?
I’ve been published with small press, and then promptly unpublished with small press (but that’s another story). And I’ll probably self-publish at some stage. I’ve been agented, and then no longer agented when I realised that no agent is better that an agent that isn’t a match for you.
I get along with basically everyone. I don’t care on anyone’s status of whether they have a book out or not, and if they do how they did it.
I see authors as part of a community where we should help each other with support and compassion.
What about you? Do you think there is an issue between traditional published authors/small press authors/self-published authors? Is there an issue between agented authors and non-agented authors?
