Query or self-publish? Make an informed decision.

Maybe you’re debating on it now, imaging what route is the best for you… Well, to make an informed decision, you should read a lot about the subject– and there are loads to read about it, believe me. So I decided to compile here some great articles I’ve been reading on the matter to make this process a little easier.

Please, feel free to add other relevant links on the comments section. And tell us your decision: are you going to query or self-publish your next (or first) book?

Well, I wish us all the best of luck, whatever decision we make!

  1. Thanks for the shout out, Renata! My post is for those who are considering going the traditional route after you’ve gone the indie route which is always an important thing to consider before jumping in. You’ve got some other great looking stuff in the list… now, which one to read first? 🙂

    • Thank you for a great post, Jean. I agree, that’s something to consider before deciding. Tks for commenting!
      And yes, a lot to read, right? 🙂
