As I explained to the lady on the phone, the trouble with so-called “self-publishing” websites is that they make their money off of you…you have to pay a fee for whatever services they provide. Well and good, but the traditional publishing “model” is that they make money off your book, not you. If and when I pen a tome, my “contribution” is my hard work, not my savings. Which is not to say I couldn’t change my mind sometime in the future, but geez. She did say to me: Sounds like you need a literary agent. I asked: Do they make money off me or my book? She said: Your book. See? That’s what I’m talking about.
