    Well, I’ll admit I’m close to giving up. But, unlike the lady in this video, I’ve had quite a lot of fun. I sold a few…I did get legitimate reviews–and people liked my work!

    So, you know, this is an exaggeration. With trdditional publishing you get a small audience most of the time, too. And these days you don’t even get that.

    So, I say, try it. You’ll learn something.

      It’s true that you have to do promotion yourself when you self-publish. However, with most of the traditional publishers, the author is responsible for the majority of promo anyway.

      The good news is that the Internet and social media make promotion easier than ever before.
