I’m departing a bit from writing about faith today to let you writers out there know about a new resource on the market.
If you’re like me, you’ve heard a lot of conflicting information about self-publishing versus traditional publishing. It’s confusing, often contradictory and downright mind-boggling. How do you sort through it all and come out feeling confident about your decision?
Well here’s an answer for you:
My agent, Rachelle Gardner, has ventured into the world of self-publishing herself this week, with the launch of her brand-new e-book: How Do I Decide: Self-Publishing vs. Traditional Publishing.
Chock-full of insider information, How Do I Decide? gives you the facts you need to make an informed choice. It walks you through the various steps of the publishing process so you can determine which road best suits your personal goals, temperament and level of previous publishing experience.
How Do I Decide? is brief, yet comprehensive, and includes:
• an overview of the current publishing landscape
• an outline of the path to publishing
• a user-friendly checklist to help you figure out your path
• pros and cons of traditional publishing
• pros and cons of self-publishing
Now for the full disclosure statement: I helped Rachelle with writing and editing this e-book behind-the-scenes! Just days after I quit my job last May, Rachelle offered me this opportunity, and I am so grateful for her trust and confidence in me. In doing the research for the book I learned SO much valuable information about both self-publishing and traditional publishing, and as a result, I can say with authority that I will be pursuing self-publication – at least in the e-book format — sometime in the future. I’m biased, of course, but I’d say How to Decide is a valuable resource for any writer who is grappling with the pros and cons of both publishing options.
The How to Decide is available now on Amazon by clicking HERE. It will soon be available on Barnes & Noble online, iBooks, Kobo, Sony and other sites as well.
So what about you? Have you considered self-publishing or taken the plunge? Or are you still firmly a traditionalist? Or are you so totally confused about the whole process, you don’t know which way to turn?
