Everywhere we look, we see authors talking about this. Self-publish is hard work and can be very expensive (hiring an editor, a proof-reader, a cover artist, advertising, etc), but you have total control over your work. If you are a control freak, it may sound more appealing.
On the other hand, traditionally publishing –still a dream for some authors– is also hard work (writing a good query and a good synopsis, sending it correctly to agents and publishers, etc.) and requires a huge amount of patience. It’s not easy to decide which way to go.
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!
