Don’t decide to self-publish just yet

An author takes a look at why jumping to self-publishing might not be the best move, including:
- lack of professional editing
- overwhelmed by self-pubbed books, readers are more likely to see a book put out by a publisher as having more value
- not as likely to get speaking engagements (not such a consideration for us novelists)
- having to do all your own marketing
- lack of an advance
