If You’re Going to Self-Publish…

… for gods’ sakes, don’t give other people $20,000 to do it. Or even $600.

And especially, if they say they’re helping you to self-publish, you definitely should not give them royalties. Especially if all they do is sell you expensive copies of your work to try to sell yourself.

Real self-publishing: the money made forwards is all yours. That’s part of the fucking point.

ETA: John Scalzi sez it better.
