I am considering self publishing and have been reading some self published books that Iíve downloaded from Amazon. So far, I havenít read anything that has really hooked me except Wool. Are there different types of self published books out there? The ones Iíve tried have been very formulaic and part of large series - probably written to sell. If you do attempt to write something that is not written to follow the popular genre tropes, do you have any chance of selling?

My reasons for wanting to self publish have to do with it being a quicker process with more control.
