  1. For many unless you have an inside track you should self publish if you want to make some type of income. I have friends who are published writers and they are not doing well. Overall the industry has a few booms and whole lot of busts.The only way to stand out is to build up a proper fan base, market like crazy, do videos and podcasts and publish quality material. There is no easy way to do this, but it will look easy once it all comes together for someone. The backstory for each success is usually years of poverty, long hours and endless suffering.

    1. Couldn’t agree more. Each writer’s experience is as individual as the writers themselves. I hate it when people group everyone together and make assumptions on all of their experiences and motivations, and all based on the comments of one or two people.
