    Smile sometimes self publishing is THE BEST SCENARIO!

    if your book needs big advertizing (like a typical novel) then it's best to go with random house.

    BUT... if your book fills a true demand, like "how to live in NY for $1500 a month" then you will make a lot more money if you roll up your sleeves and self publish.

    i post this because i rather hate the arrogance of the big publishers.

    i self published a book, and it's paid my rent for a long time.

    i'm not getting 7% of the cover price, i'm getting 40%, and i didn't have to suffer idiots ruining my book with edits and an awful cover.

    so i invite random house and the rest of them to KISS MY @ss!!!!!
