Ever Considered Self-Publishing?


  I have to admit, I have had my reservations about self publishing in the past.  I am one for mainstream publishing and still are; however, I am starting to realise that if you have a book concept you are certain has a place out in the big wide world of book sales and cannot crack it in getting published, then perhaps all is not lost, and all is not about spending lots of $$$ to make it happen.
My second rejection through the last publisher I sent my manuscript to provided some very positive feedback and as such I don't like saying it was rejected.  My manuscript atleast made it to their publishing meeting and then was dileberated over (which must mean it holds some potential)?  All is not lost and there will be no giving up, so if it doesn't make it through mainstream publishing then Publish-Me might be the answer.  Check it out!
