    I went through 3 publishers before I gave up and decided to self publish. I didn't feel comfortable about signing away my rights as well as the royalties was ridiculous. There are sites like "upwork" with many freelances who offer services as editing, layout and cover design which is much cheaper. Selecting a publisher is like a marriage arrangement. You don't want to be stuck with the wrong person (controlling, dishonest and self seeking). Do your homework and do what's best for you. Do what makes you happy in the end.

    @rodneyfife Good post Rodney. I would add that the publisher, unless you are a well-known author already, actually has little idea of how your book will sell. They do indeed "Throw everything up and let’s see what sticks.”

    Good points all, Rodney. I'd add: 1) Unless a publisher is willing pay an advance (no longer common), your are not guaranteed that your book will receive any marketing attention. 2) Do not pay a vanity publisher to publish your book; you're much better off publishing the book yourself, since it will cost you less to do so, and in either case there will be no marketing done except for that which you do.

    Eye opening buzz @Rodney Fife there's things written here that I would never guess. This could make peolpe more conscious and value more the writer's work.

    Thanks Rodney. After five novels I still find the publishing industry confusing, irritating and often heartbreaking. Literary agents ...its easier getting an appointment with God than it is with an agent....Hi ho...better write yet another book!
