Indie publishing becomes traditional publishing

If you’re at all considering self-publishing you should be reading Dean Wesley Smith. He had a great post today highlighting an interesting number with crossover publishing deals in 2012 and one of his comments really stood out to me:

Of the 300 or so six figure deals that were reported to them in 2012, 45 were from books that started off self-published.

That’s almost twenty precent an impressive number. I don’t doubt we’ll continue to see upward momentum in 2013. Keep writing indie authors it’s a great time to be in this industry.
