I’m a self-published author and enjoy the freedom and control it gives you over your work. I’m often asked by writers who are about to publish their first book whether I would recommend being an indie author and what advice I would offer. I think being traditionally published is great but it is very hard for an unknown author to be picked up by a traditional publisher. It is a good idea to submit to a few publishers but don’t get disheartened if you are not successful. Thanks to Amazon and CreateSpace you no longer need to leave all your hard work sitting on your computer – you can self-publish. Holding a copy of your very own book is the most amazing experience! My advice if you are thinking about writing your first book is to just sit down and start. It can be published! Be aware though that marketing is very hard, but even if you are with a publisher, a lot of the marketing stills falls to you, especially with small publishers. Just remember that very few authors become best-sellers and make a lot of money. Most of us just do it for the satisfaction of seeing our writing in print.
