Why more of you are self-publishing

The headline on this post was actually taken from the headline on an article that ran in the AARP Bulletin. In that article http://bulletin.aarp.org/. Tom Lombardo, who wrote the story, makes some interesting statements and provides some interesting quotes from authors.

“I would advise first time authors to self-publish. It is faster, less frustrating; you get what you want.”

“Self-publishing is the way to go if you’re not a big name or celebrity or have a story that can get you an agent,” says self-published author Reg Green, 80. “It’s simple, it’s much quicker, you have total control and you’re not that dependent on other people.”

“It’s nice to leave something about what you’ve observed for others to look at whenever they want to,”

What Lombardo has chronicled is a growing trend among authors to self-publish so they can retain control and actually get the book in the hands of readers.

In conclusion the article provides advice from authors who have self-published. http://bulletin.aarp.org/yourworld/reinventing/articles/how_to_publish_yourself.html
