Does self-publishing promote bad writing? 📉

In the past few years, I’ve been noticing a large influx of bad writers. 

And I believe this correlates with the ease of self-publishing…

Everyone can write, publish and sell online with minimal effort. But this was not possible previously as one needed to find a publisher who was willing to get the book released. The manuscript went through multiple edits, had professional typesetting and formatting, and a stunning cover was designed. The goal of every publisher was to get the best possible error-free book released.

But now, many “authors” seem to be publishing an unpolished and unfinished book. Many take shortcuts and release unpolished and amateurish books.

“Everyone can be a writer. But not many can be an author.”
