The panel discussion on The Joy of Self Publishing was a big hit yesterday. A number of people expressed gratitude about the content and informative nature of data. I told of my own experiences, each a new lesson. The one point I hammered on was as a self publisher, you are responsible for everything. Quality control is something you have to do, always. Scheduling is yours to choose too, as is pricing. Anyway, the talk went well. I enjoyed imparting what I know. There's a lot more to find out. The bottom line is that the writer needs to decide why they are writing. If it's top get rich, keep the day job. If it's for you, a lot of pressure comes off. If it's to entertain, another whole set of parameters come into play. SO there.
