So many people have this question now, and for good reason.
Never in the history of humankind has publishing been so easy, but the question is, what is right for you?
Self publishing is for you if you:
- write a great book
- have an engaged platform
- can afford to hire fantastic designers and editors and pay for all the other associated costs
- understand distribution and know what it takes to create a good system
- have a robust network of friends and associates (this could even be your distribution system if they will buy books)
- willing to market and publicize your book (or hire the right people to do it for you)
