First off sorry I haven't been on here in a long time. Secondly I really enjoy creative writing and think I want to make a career out of it, but I'm unsure how to get my stories out there and make a good enough income out of them. I would like to someday get my stories published, but I don't know of publishing companies in my area and I'm worried of being pressured by a publishing company. I have also thought of being self published, but I'm not sure how to go about that or if I would be as successful and make as much money doing that. I have seen some tutorials on how to use a word processor to make an ebook that can be uploaded to and viewed on different devices such as ipad, kindle, and nook.
