Self-publishing or traditional publishing which one is the better?


Is getting a contract by a publishing house still the best way to publish or is Self-Publishing the way to publish your book. I have heard that self-publishing is the way to successfully publish now days but it just seems like it is a lot of work for an inexperienced marketer, what do you think and can you give any quality marketing suggestions?

 

sort by best latest

    CreateSpace is a good suggestion for someone incline to self-publish and Amazon Kindle also has ebook publishing as well. A few best sellers originated as self-published "50 Shades of Grey" was picked later by a publisher. It's lottery odds though
