I've done a lot of research regarding how to publish a book and finding the right way for me to do it. Self-publishing is a HUGE thing now and that's the route I want to take. Will the traditional publishing route die off as self-publishing becomes more popular? Self-publishing definitely gives the author way more control, so why wouldn't you do that instead? Sure, there are a lot of other factors involved and the author is responsible for EVERYTHING! But in my opinion, self-publishing is the way to go. I'm wondering, though, what people think will happen to traditional publishing in the future?
