Don’t worry, I’m not going to go all “soap-box” on you. In fact, I am one of the novelists out there who has a positive view of both self-publishing and traditional publishing. I do have some reasons behind going the self-publishing route, however.
I have a highly self-motivated, organized, and entrepreneurial personality. I thoroughly enjoy having my hands in every step of the process. I enjoy designing cover art. I like self marketing. I even enjoy editing! Because I’m this way, I know self-publishing is a great fit for me. As well, I am intrigued with the future of self-publishing. 🙂
Would I ever consider traditional publishing? Sure. If it were a wise move for me. At this point, I don’t think it is. In the future, though? Who knows!?
I really wrote this post to let my readers know that I will be self-publishing in a few weeks (*fingers crossed*). I’ll be going with Kindle and then Smashwords for the other platforms. 🙂 SO excited. Can’t wait! Be on the lookout! I’ll announce more information as the time draws nearer. Don’t worry, it won’t be very far away!
