Below are 5 good reasons why you should self-publish your novel instead of going with a traditional publisher.  Make sure that you do your research before making any hasty decision and remember to believe in yourself no matter what!

1. Creative Control – Never allow someone else to control or dictate your creativity.  They might not understand the creative force that drives your vision and ideas.

2. Compensation – Never allow so many hands to dig into the pockets of your book.  Make sure that there’s enough profit for you.

3. The Long Haul – Never limit yourself to a particular moment in time.  Think bigger and higher and longer.

4. Pricing – Never over price or under price your book unless you are comfortable with it.

5. Flexibility – Never allow rigidness to hinder the success of your novel.  Try to think outside of the box.
