The options for publishing are wide open right now. No longer is the writer restricted in their choice of path to publication.
- You can submit work to the slush pile, cross your fingers and wait for a response, often for a very long time.
- You can publish through a publishing house and pay for the service, often at a hefty price tag.
- You can take charge, teach yourself how to do the work you are willing to do and outsource the rest.
It’s not that difficult to take charge. You just have to give yourself permission to fail.
