"Write and Self Publish Your
Book" Inbox Magazine was
established in June 2011.
The motivation behind this publication is to provide an ongoing
platform for enabling aspiring authors to self publish and market their works profitably.
John Locke, the first self published author to sell more
than 1 million copies of his books on Amazon, said:
"For many years self-published
authors have been forced to fight in the traditional arena, a place where we had almost no chance of competing,
much less winning. Add to that the stigma self-published authors face that no other business on earth imposes.
The general public has been conditioned to believe if you’re self-published your books don’t measure up. And,
the media have done all they could to hammer that message home. The phrase “vanity publishing” was almost
certainly invented by traditional publishers years ago in order to squash the competition from entrepreneurial
authors. It worked. By ridiculing and publicly shaming self-published authors for daring to invest in their own
talents and abilities, publishing houses were able to elevate themselves to god-like status. What they’re
saying, when an author believes in his abilities to the extent he’s willing to invest his own money to publish a
novel, he’s writing purely for his vanity! I have to give credit to the geniuses that came up with this hogwash,
because publishing is the only business in the world that has managed to make such a ridiculous notion seem
One of our goals is to
drive the phrases “vanity publishing” and
"vanity press" out of existence.
