Would you rather self-publish an e-book or let a literary agent handle it for me?


If you had completed an e-book and a literary agent seemed interested in it, would you go that way or do you think it would be more of an advantage if you published it yourself?

    Thank you Tim Mitchell. You have opened my eyes to so many points that I was not aware of. I am nowhere near publishing an ebook, but I feel it is something to research.

    You're welcome!

    If you're interested I have a couple of hubs on the subject.

    They're geared towards writing non-fiction

    I am in no doubt that many will go through that kind of experience. There are so many books offered that it is a wonder that some make it through to the paying reader. It is an interesting subject though, don't you think?
