Should You Self-Publish or Traditionally Publish?

Hey guys! Just a quick note from Coeur d’Alene, Idaho as we prepare to head west to Seattle! Tomorrow I’m hosting a free webinar about self-publishing v. traditional publishing. I’m a big fan of both (I’ve self-published four books of my own, two of other people and my memoir was published with Penguin Random House). It’s a completely different experience with pros and cons to both sides.

Here’s what I know:

1. More people should attempt the traditional route then what I see coming through my writing courses (self-publishing has become the default for a lot of bloggers).

2. It’s not about you as the author, it’s about the type of book you want to write.

I’ll get into all of this and more… tomorrow at 2 PM EST. Join me! Come say hi!
