Yesterday I explained over on my personal blog why I decided to self-publish my book. It really was not a long process, I knew it was the best way for me to go. If I was going to write my book, I wanted to have total creative control and I wanted it out there as soon as it was all polished up.
Maybe at some point I’ll send in work to a traditional publisher. There are some more pros in going with traditional (like more exposure) but at the same time, being an indie author I am learning so much more about the publishing world because I have to go out and research this all on my own.
