Now I understand

When I started on the path to self-publishing, I really had no idea how many different things I would have to learn to do for myself. In traditional publishing, the author relied on the publishing house to take care of all the details (and there are a lot of them) while they happily returned to doing what they wanted most to do – write.

I know it sounds like I am complaining, and I suppose I am in a way, but I don’t think the average reader has a clue how much is involved in publishing your own work. The process is daunting and frustrating, along with scary and time consuming. I’m quite sure there are other words I could use, but not in polite company! Will it all work out in the end – sure. Will it be worth it – yes. Is it for the feint of heart – no!
