Recently I came across a terrific article that describes the options in clear, no-nonsense terms. It’s called “7 Questions to Ask Before Choosing a Self-Publishing Company,” by Helen Sedwick. Helen is author of The Self-Publisher’s Legal Handbook, and a regular columnist on Joel Friedlander’s very helpful website, The Book Designer. I first learned about it via Laurie Harper, of Author Biz Consulting – and that’s a perfect example of how good information travels around the Internet. (Specious information, too – so be careful). I’ll have more to say about the awesome Laurie in later articles, but for now, I want to urge you to read Helen’s piece. This whole question – traditional publisher, electronic-only publisher, self-publisher –is a big, big decision, and you owe it to yourself to collect solid information before you jump in.
