Many of my author friends are indie publishers and have encouraged me to do the same. I do like the control authors have over their own books, but I wasn't certain Indie publishing was right for me. For the past several weeks, I've researched indie publishing and, because I'm not tech savvy, I decided it wasn't the way I should go. The cost is prohibitive to my budget. I was overwhelmed by book covers, formatting for ebooks and print books, copywriting, etc. After doing simple arithmetic, I realized I would need to sell an enormous number of books to break even. Since I'm not good at promoting myself and my books, I might not recover my costs. I'm impressed with indie publishers, but for now I'm grateful for small press publishers who do the work for me.
