Thanks, Anna for sharing your process.
I like your strategy of going to writer’s conventions.
Obviously you feel that getting a publisher is better than self-publishing. Why?
I self-published a memoir four years ago and did little to market it. Now I see at least three more memoirs, and I think I have something important to say — I want to get my words out there.
The process of self-publishing was not easy for me. Although I am 73 years old, I do have some tech skills, but not as many as the average teen ager.
A friend suggested I was too old to be self-publishing and taking care of marketing due to the tech difficulties. He suggested I get a publisher.
Can you please offer a comparison?
