I have a dilemma here. Say I have a manuscript or two written up, ready to go. What is an aspiring author to do?
Self publish, or find a publisher?
Self publishing, while more expensive, gives me the creative liscense. It also prevents one from having to wait for a publisher to pick them up. It’s much more work, but I wonder if it is worth it in the end.
Publishing, on the other hand, is a waiting game. Waiting for your genre to be popular, waiting for your story to be deemed as readable. Waiting to be good enough. Hoping. Praying. You have less control, but you also have better marketing and such.
So I wonder, you see, which to choose.
