So a while ago smart bitch Sarah posted this stream of conscious piss on the site.
Basically it professed to be a self-publishing reader survey, but the original blog post was ridiculously biased. Some choice comments from that post include:

I honestly read that paragraph three times to make sure I didn’t miss a plot point. “Darker places” doesn’t begin to cover it. Holy holy holy. Faster than you can say “star-struck lesbian cops” my perception of self publication changes.
But thinking about this pitch, and the many-layed cake of WTFery going on in there, made me think about the conversation I’d had about self-publishing, and how readers perceive it.That was in reference to his blurb.
Yeah, so anyway, she slags off his book, makes some ridiculous assertions about self-publishing (authors who self-publish face competition from authors who self-publish and authors who trad publish, she says.

Anyway, a comment was just posted over at her site...
Being the author of “Touched By A Charlie’s Angel” I find this self publishing debate intriguing but in my case, it doesn’t really apply to my ebook. “Touched By A Charlie’s Angel” is not self published, it was published by Club Lighthouse publishing ebook publisher who edits and markets my work. By the way, I have been published by Prentice Hall, Harper Collins, Avon and in the U.K. by Quartet Books.
If you're interested, you can buy the book here.
