Traditional Publishing vs Self Publishing

On a personal level I have argued with myself on whether I wanted to self publish (as I like the possibility to do everything myself) or go the traditional publishing route (which would give me more credibility in the long run). These days, self publishing is becoming more popular but are still seen as uncredible.

I have found an article done by a lady I met at The Muse Online Writers Conference named Stephanie Chandler for my Article of the Month. (I'm doing the article of the month a bit early, hoping for a book I'm awaiting to arrive in the mail for me to review for you by the end of the month) Here's her bio for you could get to know her and the link to the article will be at the very bottom.

Stephanie Chandler is an author of several business and marketing books including From Entrepreneur to Infopreneur: Make Money with Books, eBooks and Information Products (John Wiley & Sons) and The Author’s Guide to Building an Online Platform: Leveraging the Internet to Sell More Books (Quill Driver).

Stephanie is also founder and CEO of Authority Publishing, which provides custom book publishing, content marketing and internet marketing solutions. A frequent speaker at business events and on the radio, she has been featured in Entrepreneur Magazine, BusinessWeek, Inc.com and many other media outlets.

On self-publishing, it doesn't feel real to me. Like I put on a paper pirate hat and tried sail the ocean.

Yet, I know there is no market for poetry.

So choices, choices. What can a girl do?

yeah really....it's so hard to choose what's best for you when you're unsure of the outcome
