    Many people seem to be turning to self-publishing now because they have total control over how their books look both inside and out, what their content is and what the actual price of their books is. They have the final say in everything and can see their literary and artistic vision become a reality rather than be turned down by the standard publishers. The downside is that when readers hear a book has been self-published they don't want anything to do with it because they automatically assume that the work is self-published because no publisher wanted to publish it and think it is therefore of a bad quality.

      I completely agree. But I wonder how so many ways to self publish will impact the corporate publishing industry long term. With Ebooks and all those self publishing platforms it seems like the traditional route may someday find itself empty...
