"But for the time being, there is no "gate-keeping" on the Net. Thus chances for a good book to rise to the surface and become visible are wholly dependent on luck."

I agree that a little more gate-keeping would be helpful, but I don't think self-published authors are wholly dependent on luck to rise to the surface. Self-published authors who tirelessly look for ways to promote their books can help make their own luck.

For example, a debut self-published author might comment on an article about the future of publishing and invite folks to check out the hot new time-travel thriller "The Dinosaur Four," which has a 4.6/5 star average (104 reviews). :)

+Claude Nougat  I'm not saying it's easy. But I'm taking the Andy Dufresne/ Combat Carl approach to this. And it certainly helps to have a book that readers really seem to  be connecting with. As for the "cliff," my understanding is that publishing another (good) book is the best thing to pull an existing book back up (and then some). But I can't speak to that yet - The Dinosaur Four is my first book.

Great discussion & great article!

This looks cool - I will take my kids.

In the meantime, if anyone is interested in a much more adult story about dinosaurs, check out "The Dinosaur Four" on ebook. Feathered dinos cause lots of carnage... even the "veggie-sauruses."
