Hi, I'm new to this forum and this is my first post. I'm sorry if this question has been answered many time before, If it has please redirect me. I have completed my first manuscript and I'm considering the process of publishing. The more I read, the more confused I become. I understand having a book traditionally published is difficult, and if the book gets selected it's a rarity, but is it worth the effort considering the small advances and royalties? Self publishing interests me, but making my novel discoverable against the millions of e-books appears to be a difficult task. So for a person who wants to have a chance of making some money, and once again, I appreciate how difficult it is to make money, can you advise your preferred option, traditional or self publish.
