I have a finished manuscript sitting here, ready to be taken further. For weeks now I wonder which way to go. To self publish or not to self publish.
I had meeting after meeting with people who wanted to “help” me and more than once I heard the same phrase: Do you have a lazy 5’000 – 10’000 sitting around to invest while you self publish?
Honestly? No, I don’t! But that also means, that I don’t have a “lazy” 2’500 or 3’000 sitting around to pay you for a module, which in the end will not really bring me any further.
No, I don’t have the time really to run around and promote my book. But do I have to?
I was investigating over the last couple of weeks about self publishing and the many ways I can go. And honestly: I rather do that. I don’t want to spend my money on someone, who is not a publisher or an editor but just a mentor. You have all my respect and I totally understand where you are coming from. But I will try and go my own way. And only time will tell, if it was the right decision.
