comment Does self publishing via Amazon or similar services make your book ineligible for later acceptance by a publisher?
@Standback, good points, though it must be said that Janet Reid's reputation and livelihood rest on the traditional publishing model, so there is considerable bias there.

@LaurenIpsum, good to know. Though, if I was making $2 million a year from my writing, I don't know if I'd care too much about publishers. I wonder if there are any instances of publishers taking on self-published writers who had potential, but were not already as wildly successful as that, and the publishers then made a difference. Or, put another way, where publishers weren't merely hitching themselves to an already risen star.
