Lately I’ve been looking into all types of publishing to chose the type of publishing that would be best for me. While traditional publishing has been one form that I’ve looked at for many years, but it is self-publishing that has drawn my attention for the past two months. However the more I read about it, the less I like some of the companies out there.

This hasn’t stopped me though, I found some particularly interesting articles. The first mentioned some highly respected and bestselling authors turning to self-publishing. The second suggested creating a publishing house for an author to use a book printing company that will only deal with publishing houses and giving yourself more control over everything dealing with your book without the fees I’ve been told about.

I’ll post more for interested parties as I learn more, but please feel free to ask questions. 🙂

    There is a traditionally published author who turned to self-publishing and made enough on his Kindle sales to pay his mortgage, but I can’t remember his name. Do you have any idea who this is? I think he’s in science fiction or fantasy. But I would like to see why traditionally published authors went on their own and why.

    In relation to starting a small publishing house to self-publish, is there a step by step guide to this? Do these authors take in other authors or just themselves or just a group of them? I know an author who recently started her own publishing company and has just decided she will only publish her books.

    Those are some questions right off the top of my head. 🙂

    I don’t know his name, but it sounds fimiliar. I do know that many writers are getting tired of the traditional publishers and the shit they pull.

    It was only by chance that I ran into the one article I did. As for the questions, I’ll answer them in further detail in my next few posts.
