Are You Self Published?

What’s a writer to do these days?

Everywhere we turn we see ads and tweets and  posts offering to publish our work for a fee. Some deals are expensive, others appear to cost next to nothing.  All offer an audience for our work. Work that we have lost sleep over and sacrificed time with family and friends in order to rewrite and edit until we are convinced it’s the best it can be.

What’s a writer to do?

Some say,  “The traditional way is the only way.”  Others say,  “Times are changing, get with the program.” Many are confused by the sheer number of choices or become frustrated with the days and months spent searching for an agent or an editor willing to take a chance on an unknown author. 

As a writer and a writing coach, I don’t feel it’s my place to tell anyone how to get  his or her book  published. I do know it’s important to make an informed decision. Over the next several months I’ll be researching self publishing companies and interviewing writers who have chosen to work with them. I intend to use the information gathered to design a workshop providing factual information and real life examples of what to expect and what not to expect when choosing the self publishing option. 

If you have self published a book and are interested in being interviewed for this project, please contact me. Are you thrilled? Are you sorry?  What really happened?
