Should I publish in ebook or self publish instead of going to a New York house?
That is a personal decision every author has to make for his or her own self. I’ve never self pubbed, but I did sell ebooks. The market for ebooks has exploded and a lot of authors are now choosing to do that.
Personally, I know how much a publisher puts into an author’s career, and I’d rather write than do their jobs. I think New York is the best, but the final decision is yours. Never let anyone dictate to you how to run your life or your career.
