Jackie Collins, Queen of . . . Self-Publishing?

Ayup. Jackie Collins is abandoning (more or less) conventional publishing. (This isn't "news" exactly; I gather she announced this in February [which goes to show just how carefully I follow the career of J. Collins] {I have to be honest: I had to look her up; I wasn't sure who she was}, but I just learned about it. Thanks, Anat!) In all seriousness, the blog entry I've linked to is worth reading because she delineates all the right reasons for making the switch. Any writer who isn't at least thinking about doing so is crazy.
