I know there has been a lot of talk about self publishing however it has been divided talk. Some writers say that you can be successful and others say you cannot. I am wondering what my fellow hubbers thing is self publishing really good or is it a waste of time and effort?
If you mean is it worth paying someone to publish your book, I'd guess that it usually is not.
But it can definitely be worthwhile selling e-books yourself. I sell three and make about $50 a month from each for several years now. That's not "buy an island" money, but it definitely was worth the effort.
