From what I've read, self-publishing and e-publishing still has a stigma attached. Even POD has a stigma and I don't know why. It makes sense to only print one book at a time when it's needed. Saves paper. But, until the biggie publishers jump on the POD or electronic format, publishing will stay as it currently is. It's sad, but it seems that unless you get with a decent publisher who preprints a good-sized first run, and pays an advance, you won't be considered a 'real' author. Just my opinion as I see it.
