Traditional -vs- Self-publishing

    The publishing process is one you will consider long and hard. The decision to use traditional publishing (including the small press model), self-publishing, or a hybrid approach will depend on many factors. The timeliness in which you hope to hold that coveted masterpiece in your hands, the royalties you will receive, what you want to see for a cover, or even the amount of hands-on work you wish to do, can all be factors that will offer you the most confusing experience of your life.

     You could send your manuscript to a traditional publishing company, but self-publishing allows you to make all the choices right? Things like the cover art, interior design, even story content–based on your vision, and your goals. These are what is important, so make your choices wisely.
