While it’s true that both indie and traditional publishing have different things to recommend them, chances are you would never confuse a traditionally published author with one who swings indie.

    I get that this was an attempt at humor, but I don’t think the sweeping generalizations in this piece do your audience any favors. I’ve yet to see a single traditionally published author using their Twitter like a malevolent bot, rather than to actually connect to their audience. I’ve seen quite a number of old crones indie publishing, and the idea that you don’t also get reviewed by friends and family if you trad pub is laughable.

    I’m all for applauding the benefits of indie publishing, but you shouldn’t have to lie about traditional publishing to do so.
