I'm kind of curious. I'm looking and considering self-publishing options for my book. When it comes to self-publishing, it seems that Amazon is in the limelight among other options out there, but I've also heard a lot of negative about Amazon self-publishing, too. I'm not sure if that's what I want. I have heard of authors making it their responsibility nearly 100% to market their book. From what I understand, this is having a website to sell your book on. I would assume you would need your own ISBN and bar code as well. Not to mention a platform where you can make copies of your book. Then, the marketing is of course another thing to worry about. I'm pretty much stuck between options because it sounds like more money would be needed up front to sell your book completely on your own, but then again, if the financial aspects are done right, I would assume you get more of your money's worth than you would through a third party marketing your books. What did you do for self-publishing? What are your experiences with it? Thanks!
