An anonymous reader writes: Author Keir Thomas has blogged about his experiences self-publishing a computing book. FTA: "As I write this, am I reclining on a chaise longue stuffed with $100 dollar bills? Did my big self-publishing experiment work? The short answer: Not really. The longer answer: Kinda. If you want to earn money from writing, write magazine journalism. If you really want to write a book, get signed to a publisher. If you want an adventure then try self-publishing."

I attribute my success to intelligence, guts, determination, honesty, ambition, and having enough money to buy people with those qualities.
