Mainstream route doesn't guarantee attentive ear though. I want to keep in view wider spectrum of probable failure!

@MaxDunbar1 Guess most self-pub e-books get fewer readers 'n most blogs, less search traffic, take longer to read, but if pub. cost near 0..

@MaxDunbar1 Low advance publishing biz is spread betting by publishers, but all or nothing for authors.

@
@MaxDunbar1 Question of cost & expectation. Cost of low selling books in mainstream not born 100% by publisher, author risks labour cost..

@
@MaxDunbar1 Agree on wider point that self-publishing crazily over-hyped, but regular publishing also over-hyped w. unrealistic expectations

deerhead_normal.jpg
kelliestrom Kellie Strøm
@
@MaxDunbar1 Though comparing to blogging should also lower expectations of resulting riches!

deerhead_normal.jpg
kelliestrom Kellie Strøm
@
@MaxDunbar1 But that one focuses on e-book self-publishing, possible at minimal cost unlike high cost paper books, comparable to blogging!
