I decided to take a look into why people feel that indie and self-published authors are a bad investment.
It doesn’t matter where your books are from all can be disliked, have mistakes in them and still not be the book you was hoping it to be.
But this I can tell you, self-published authors good or bad do get freedom to write how they wish to, you will find books you feel have problems with editing, misspelling, bad punctuation, but I have found these sorts of mistakes in those traditionally published as well.
All editing traditional and otherwise relies upon human eye, which can miss problems, but the more editing the book has the less chance the book has for having these mistakes.
Traditional publishers have many editors, and still I find some brilliant boo boo’s.

Every Writer for Him/Herself

This is a very great eye opener writers! Check out this blog!

Reading the blogs of other writers is something that most writers do – call it professional courtesy, an act of reciprocity or the opportunity to learn something from a peer – it’s part of the job.

When I first started reading the blogs of other writers it sometimes left me feeling a little confused.

lost

Regardless of the topic (editing, publishing, marketing, style, habits, tips, techniques, etc.) it seemed that each blog was giving me different information. At first I wondered who I should believe. Writer “A” picks his editor according to price while writer “B” picks hers based on qualifications, and writer “C” doesn’t use an editor.

So who is right?

It took me a while to figure it out, but the answer is “D” – All of the above.

all of the above

When it comes to writing, the only right way to do it is your way.

Okay…settle down…before you call me…
