You are likely looking at this site because you have started writing – or finished writing – a book. You love the process, love what you are doing, but feel a bit wary about what the landscape is like out there. Self-publishing is more accessible than ever, and far less expensive doing it on your own with a little help from your own community. But is it the right option for you? Between us, we have written millions of words – we make a living out of it. Lots of things are happening in publishing. What we find out, we will let you know.  We will post reviews. We will give you honest opinions of what is going on. We also want to hear and share your experiences. So wander in. We will be posting blogs and updates frequently! self-publishing
