I recently read this article, sent by another member of the New Jersey Author’s Network. It’s a rather sobering view of the realities of self-publishing. I’ve never made any big bucks from my books (although I did get a nice advance from Adams Media for Talk Dirty Yiddish), but I’m still grateful to Swimming Kangaroo and now to Oak Tree Press for taking a chance on me. I’m particularly relieved not to have to try to do the formatting for Kindle and Nook!
Read and discuss!
