Answering The How – Matt Forbeck on Self-publishing


Matt Forbeck has been one of my top finds of the year. I’ve read three of his novels this year and six comics and he’s been the most consistent author as far as I’m concerned, because I’ve loved everything I’ve read. Whether it’s fantasy, or science-fiction or historical fiction, this man totally knows what he’s writing about and his love for his writing shines through. His thoughts on self-publishing are a topic that I’ve waited to read about for quite a while and here is a big teaser for why he does what he does.
