In today's high tech world, there are all kinds of ways to publish books. You have got traditional, self-publishing, POD, and each one of these has an electronic counterpart, except for print on demand, but the service is ran through the same company. There are several big time authors electing to go the self publishing route to eliminate the middle man issue, but then again, they can do that. For all you new authors out there, how are you getting started? Ive nearly completed the rough draft for my second book, but my first is still waiting in the wings so to speak.That one I have been holding out for traditional publishing because it has been a 6 year dream. The story of Jazer and Octavius though, has been a 4-5 month endeavor so far and after the 2 months of editing, about half a year of work. I plan on going the POD electronic service route, just to get my name out there. That's my plan, what is yours?
