Is it really TOO expensive?
It's a fact that most authors now-a-days have to pay a good majority of their publishing costs themselves. They also have to take care of the majority of publicity efforts as well. Some writers happily accept this sad fact, yet there are some who never get anything accomplished as a result. I have seen so many people use the excuse that it's too 'expensive' and therefore quit all required action. If you are serious about being a writer and getting published you will not let monetary issues prevent you from fulfilling your dreams. I, for one, had to save several months working many jobs I hated before the opportunity came to me. But, when it did, the elation that followed was beyond what words could express. Regardless if I was considered 'successful' by others or not. It all comes down to this, if you think publishing costs are expensive, just try to imagine yourself unpublished for the rest of your life.
