From: [personal profile] melannen
...I am the sort of person who has been known to put self-published books about model trains on her Christmas list. Um.

But, yes. If you say "I've published a book about model trains / local species of lichen / colonial American glassware / poetry about my mother's garden" or whatever, people might think you are weird and obsessive, but you aren't expected to establish your bona fides as a writer with sales figures or publishers' names the way people who write fiction (and scripts and comics) often are.

I would actually love to see non-fiction self-publishers get some of the tools for actually making money that fiction self-publishers are developing, though. I would love to see more indy nonfiction getting published and actually visible and professional.
