Ep 50: Publishing Models: Unraveling the Paths to Bookshelf Success

These days, there's more than just one path to getting a book published. 

From traditional publishing to hybrid publishing to self-publishing, every aspiring author has an opportunity to have her voice heard and to make an impact on readers. 

For as many people who hail one approach, there are just as many who eschew it. 

To be sure, there are pros and cons to each. The key is knowing what those pros and cons are so you can make the best decision for your book project (and the decision may very well change from book to book!).

In this episode of the Write the Damn Book Already podcast, you'll gain a more thorough understanding of traditional, hybrid/vanity, and self-publishing.

And while I believe each model has its place, there's one I consistently advise authors to stay (far) away from. I've never heard of an experience with this publishing model ending well.
