The Challenges of Self-Publishing

I am the author of six books – a series of five juvenile fiction books and one nonfiction book for authors who want to market their books to schools. I had a publisher for my first book, but started my own company in 2007, and have self-published ever since.

There are two reasons why I decided to self-publish — control and money!
