  1. You make a good point, especially on the marketing aspect. I think Self publishing may work for those with marketing experience or a lot of time/exertise in social media but not so great for those who don’t, having seen someone I know go down that route!

    • Also, those who have a lot more time on their hands than working moms with kids and a “day job” to pay the bills while we try to get these writing careers off the ground, right? 🙂 Thanks for the comments! Tami

  2. I do both ~ have a publisher and indie pub. I like the publisher better for all the reasons you said. I use the indie books as a way to control my own writing time and release schedule. Editors and publishers create author timetables, indies make their own. So if I’m not getting turnaround quickly enough, I focus on an indie project. Love your font btw:)

    • Cindy – I completely agree with you! I started as indie and this will be my first release with a publisher. I expect I’ll keep straddling both worlds too :). Thanks for the compliment – I’ll pass it along to my webmaster!
