Here is a question for many writers out there.
I've talked to a few writers about publishing. Okay, who hasn't? One topic is, if you self-publish. Will traditional publishers deny you? Some say yes, they won't look at your work. Others say, they'll look at your sales and see how you are doing. Other say, sure why not self-publish, while you look for a publisher.
As we know there are some self-publishing authors out there who have done well, they are now going the traditional way.
So what do you think? Is it good to self-publish first? If you want to do traditional, should you not even think twice about self-publishing?
