I have a lot of things I could say about this subject, but this blog post hits on everything I’ve suspected and some conclusions I arrived at on my own without the experience — the point about how publishing controls the market in particular. But alas, if you’re an aspiring author seeking a traditional contract, please read this blog post by Kacen Callender Social Media Expectations.

Some of the points in the post jell with points I made about why I chose to self-publish. I’m also including the link to the tweet so you can read the comments from other published authors.
