Yes, that is the question but I’m beginning to think there’s more to it.
For some time now, I’ve been internally debating whether to move forward and self-publish the first book of my paranormal trilogy via Amazon.com’s print-on-demand and Kindle direct services. After reading Kristen Lamb’s blog post, Why Traditional Marketing Doesn’t Sell Books, I’m going to hold off and regroup.
After a thorough edit by Gloria Campbell, a professional book editor, I’ll go back through and make sure I have the highest quality product I can offer readers of my debut novel. I also want to be sure I’ve taken into account the major principles Kristen mentions in her book, We Are Not Alone: A Writer’s Guide to Social Media.
For those who are interested in my self-publishing progress, check back here and on my Facebook page (see below) as I’ll be posting updates on what I discover and decide.
