I’ve stopped participating in online conversations about self-publishing vs. traditional publishing.
Every person has to follow their own way, as we know, so I don’t see the point in even having those conversations. I mean, who cares anyway?
But I love the idea of making my own books. I’ve made a few in the past.
And now I’ve got another show coming up in January, and I’ve decided that instead of my usual framed art, I shall show books.
I did actually sell my novel as a handmade book once. I don’t know who bought it, but I will love the buyer forever.
So, not a practical choice. I’ll lose money, since I can’t sell enough at a price that will cover the costs. But that’s not why I make things. If I made things just for the money, I’d have to make very different things.
Anyway, I’m very excited about the next show.
And in your future? What are you looking forward to?
