Traditional Publishing or Self-Publishing

A well-written, clear explanation of differences in publishing your book via traditional publishing or self publishing is presented on the Writers Chatroom blog.  Kim Richards breaks down the topic by informing the reader about big traditional publishers, small presses, subsidy pubs, and self-publishing.  If you are trying to make a decision as to what is best for your book, please check this blog  for good information.

    E-publishing is a quick way of getting your work out there, especially with the advent of the various e-readers available, but I think the problem is that there are a lot of poorly written e-books around. I think the trouble is that people write their piece but they don’t get it proof read. I have seen books where spelling mistakes were rife and sometimes spell checkers won’t pick this up – I have just written an e-book on bread baking where I had a sentence talking about salt content, but it actually read “salt contend!” The spell checker missed this because there were effectively no typos. I am lucky to have a wife who is a brilliant proofreader and she never holds back on the “constructive” criticism! Nothing beats a fresh pair of eyes, and remember you only get one chance to make a good first impression.
