What Happens After You Write? Understanding Your Publishing Choices
Let's take an unbiased, unvarnished look at current publishing options and how to approach them, from the "Big Five" traditional publishers, to small presses, to self-publishing (with or without service companies), to hybrid and other emerging models. We'll examine the pros and cons of each choice, realistic costs, and income potential, as well as pitfalls to avoid. Most importantly, we'll look at how each writer's goals and strengths can help them make the best decision for them.
