2012 Was the Year of Self Publishing

1 Jan

The Christian Science Monitor has declared 2012 as the year of self publishing.  Why?  Mainly because influential NY Times books critic Michiko Kakutani chose a self-published title as one of her favorite books of the year.  Here’s the link to the story.

Kakutani didn’t review my book, but many publications, radio stations, and blogs did give thumbs up to The Discreet Charms of a Bourgeois Beach Town in 2012, and for that I’m quite grateful.  Can’t wait to see what 2013 brings.
