I'm currently en route to self-publish and the short answer is that it's not the "easy" route. It is the Oregon Trail of writing.

Everything that your publisher and agent would have done for you, you have to figure out yourself to stand out above the pile of crap.

Feedback? Figure it out.

Editing? Figure it out. It's anywhere from 200 - 1500 dollars.

Copy Editing? Figure it out. It's anywhere from 200 - 1500 dollars.

Advertising/Marketing? Figure it out. It's anywhere from 0 - your wildest imaginations.

Financial Support? Hopefully you have a decent bank account or have loved ones who can support you.

Emotional Support? Steak, diet coke, and cake with coffee helps me a lot. Also this

Guidance? Unless you have a mentor in the field, internet will be your best friend.

OH right and Cover Art? Books are judged by their cover-especially in the world of ebooks. This can be anywhere from 0 - 600 dollars.

Even after all that, your precious book will just be a glint in the pile of poop that you desperately hope people will notice (unless you had lot of marketing money/success).

And unless you sell enough copies to be noticed by a traditional publisher, you'll have to deal with the social stigma of being the lowly 'self-published' author.

If you end up becoming the 99% of the ebook authors (I should say 'non-erotica' authors), you'll be mostly doing it for self-gratification as your wallet wouldn't be able to justify you doing this as a career (unless you really don't mind living off of about 500 dollars per book).

My choice to self-publish was based on personal circumstances and because I liked the challenge of doing it all on my own. It was a hard choice to make and it's been very, very difficult choice to deliver. There are many times I wonder if I should just make traditional publishing work (though given the nature of my book, I've been told it might be too much of a gamble for traditional publishers).

And with increasing number of people self-publishing these days it's only going to get tougher.

So the point of my long reply to you is to not discourage you from self-publishing but to sort of give you the sense of reality behind the decision of self-publishing.

It's definitely not the easy route and most writers don't like the idea of self-publishing because you have to spend so much of your time and effort on things that has nothing to do with writing. You have to be a businessman and a writer at the same time and you have to be able to look at your book as a product and a novel.

If you're interested, I started a blog detailing the impact the choice of writing as a career had in my life and the things I've learned about the craft and business of writing: Aramiru.Wordpress.Com

It's working its way up to more of the "business" side of things that I've discovered behind wriitng and my choice to self-publish. In fact, that should be my next-next-next post.

Punch it out. Reflect on what makes you mad, while your hands fly.

It'll come to you once you've thrown a couple thousand punches. Good Luck.
