Self-Publish or Rot in the Slush Pile... See What One Aspiring Writer Has to Say About It

Just read an awesome post from aspiring author Stacy Green's blog, Turning the Page, about the pros of waiting around for the one-percent chance you'll actually will get published in the traditional way -- or of just getting that book of yours out there so people can read it, via self-publishing.

What's your opinion?

Which way do you want to be published?

Traditionally or the self-publishing route?

Let me know -- and read the Turning the Page post.


  1. Some of it depends upon your reasons for writing. And how much you're willing to work at it. Self publishing is a huge amount of work on the marketing end. Huge. And time consuming. I heard a panel where one lady was self published and she said she was glad she'd written 8 books before publishing because she spends so much time marketing now she doesn't have time to write.

  2. Huh, that's an interesting way to look at it. Marketing and social media is definitely a full-time job. It definitely cuts into a writer's creative time.
