First day of sales for Marrowbones have been fantastic! Thanks so much everyone! This has been really exciting. I wanted to clarify my reasons for self publishing this book, while money factors in of course, it was primarily about getting more material out there. Traditional publishing is slow, and with the kind of work I'm doing it's really hard to have a lot of work visible. And it also limits the stories you can tell. By releasing things digitally, these issues can be overcome, and you can still have a great relationship with traditional publishing. I've talked about the importance of traditional publishing elsewhere. I think it's very important.
Digital also allows me to produce work that can later be refined, unlike print which has a feeling of finality to it, a digital work can be refined and made better with ease. I'd like to talk more about this idea another time, I'm still gather my thoughts.
but what I mostly wanted to post about was my new Marrowbones fan page on Facebook! Have a look
