Are you pursuing a traditional publishing contract or going the indie route and publishing on your own? Your dreams and background may affect your choice.
There's no single right way to write, publish, or promote your book. Every journey to publication is different, just like every author.
In today's duo episode, Greta and Megan walk you through their publishing journeys. They talk about their early choices and the self-assessments that led Greta to pursue a traditional publishing contract, while Megan immediately gravitated to the indie path.
Along the way, they explain the difference between the two paths, warn of the dangers of predatory vanity presses, and encourage new writers to learn about the industry while taking it all one step at a time.
