As a book blogger I do accept self-published books and I’m one of the dwindling bloggers that does, it seems. I’ve been burned by self-published authors before (see this lovely incident) but overall they’re a great bunch of people trying to get their unique stories out into the world.
That said, of course self-publishing has its downsides and these are the common stereotypes that you find in the media. There’s poor grammar, spelling, pacing, badly developed characters, etc. And that’s why some people choose not to read self-published books.
What I want to know now is this: Do you read self-published books? Why or why not?
