“[...] self-publishing is like getting to jump right onto your flight and go wherever you want to go, and traditional publishing means submitting to an invasive colonic cavity search before you’re even allowed near the gate.This is true-ish, in that I can literally write the word ‘fart’ 100,000 times and slap a cover of [a] baboon urinating into his own mouth, then upload that cool [thing] right to Amazon. Nobody would stop me. Whereas, at the Kept Gates, a dozen editors and agents would slap my Baboon Fart Story to the ground like an errant badminton birdie.”
Should we just take Chuck’s word for it? Of course not. His hypothesis, like any other, needs to be put to the test. Can I literally get onto virtual store shelves via Chuck’s described method? Can one simply walk into self-publishing like a damn hobbit?
This book is the word “fart” written 100 000 times. You are literally about to buy the word "fart," written over and over. There is a picture of a baboon drinking piss on the cover for some reason, but other than that, it's a whole lot of the word "fart."
It's also a biting critique of quality control in self-publishing or something.
Thanks a bunch.
