Why I Didn’t Self Publish



Today I am giving a bit of insight into my decision, many years ago, to pursue traditional publishing. I’ve been at it for about 5 years, and I’m on my third book, which is being published next year!

I talk about distribution, branding, editing, marketing and more in the video, and something I forgot to mention that ties into distribution: you can’t get into libraries unless you are traditionally published, and libraries are very important to me!

Also, I’d like to note that OF COURSE good self-publishers hire editors and cover designers and whatnot to help them produce the best possible produce, similar to what you get with a traditional publisher. I forgot to mention it, and don’t want any awesome self-publishers to think that I’m selling them short! However, I do like that in traditional publishing that money flows to the author, so, again, I don’t have to worry about the “running my own business” aspect of the whole thing.

To each his own, and these are just my personal reasons!
