    What do you think is the most positive aspect of self-publishing?

    Have you self-published a book? If you have, what do you think is the most positive aspect of self-publishing? What are the pluses to being your own publisher?...

    I haven't personally self-published, but I have a few friends who have. The good thing about self-publishing is that it is a sure way to get your book out there. You have control over just about everything and you have the power to make sure things get done right.

    But you have to consider the downside to self-publishing too. It costs a lot of money, and there is no garuntee that your book will sell.

      You do have to consider both the up and downsides, yes.

      I think there's no guarantee your book will sell, whether you self-publish or trad publish. I didn't find it that expensive, though.

    Only that you learn how it is done...it is time consuming and quite expensive..but you never lose the knowledge...

      I'd agree with the value of learning the process, having done it twice now.

    I haven't done it, but I think the best part is having the control and freedom.
