So, the 2nd question is “What is your choice: traditional publishing or self-publishing?”
1) Author #1 : Chloe S. Flanagan
I have opted for self-publishing because it allows me freedom and flexibility.
2) Author #2: Olena Kagui
There are benefits to both! As a new writer I prefer to publish traditionally while I learn more about this. Eventually, I would love to try out self-publishing!
3) Author #3: Angela Breen
As part of an indie press, I do a little bit of everything. Personally, I think Indie Publishing is the way to go. I know there’s still a bit of a stigma around self-publishing but it’s a smart business decision. BUT I also understand wanting someone to help you along the way which is why we created Amphibian Press. To offer services as well as a trusted way to get their books into the world.
4) Author #4: Victoria Spencer
Depends on the project, but I tend to prefer the freedom of indie publishing since I write marginalized characters.
5) Author #5: Erin Lynne
Great question because I am self-publishing. For me, this has been the right choice because I am able to have more control over my work (from the storyline to cover selection).
6) Author #6: Victoria Grant
Right now, I’m enjoying my journey self-publishing, but every author is different. There’s no right or wrong way, I support which ever approach works for the author to get the story published.
7) Author #7: Marie Lavender
I think a lot of what I do anyway would fall under the indie category, so probably publishing on my own would be less of a hassle. However, I can see the benefits of having a publisher, at least being under a brand of sorts.
8) Author #8: Jennifer Carole Lewis
I’m a hybrid author with an indie-published paranormal romance series and a new romantic suspense series coming out in July with a small press, Soul Mate Publishing. I think both routes offer advantages so it’s important for each author to find what works best for them individually.
9) Author #9: Amber Daulton
I’m traditionally published with small presses right now, but I’ve recently received my rights back to two novellas, so I plan on self-pubbing them soon. I like writing for small presses because they accept a broad range of stories. In time, I would like to land a contract with an agent and/or a major publishing house.
10) Author #10: J. Grayland
11) Author #11: Nicole Highland
My own personal choice was to self-publish for a number of reasons, most notably so I could be in complete control of every aspect of the process.
12) Author #12: Renata Sterling
I am currently a self-published author and definitely enjoy and appreciate it. But I would also love being a hybrid author, both traditionally and self-published if that option became available in the future.
