Kevin Doyle on Why Your Book Needs a Traditional Publisher - Slashed Reads

Kevin Doyle on Why Your Book Needs a Traditional Publisher - Slashed Reads | Book Marketing Made Easy | Scoop.it
I have not studied the fine points of editing. (Conda Douglas, who did the edits for my latest book, The Group, could tell you a thing or two about how well I keep timelines straight.) And I don’t know a darned thing about art (as in selecting and approving cover art). And while I am slowly picking up the broad points of promoting and publicizing, I don’t have nearly the business mind to do that sort of thing on a professional basis. Simply that, knowing myself as well as I do, I’m not about to leave the fate of something that I worked so long and hard on entirely in my own hands. No thank you.
