Why I Self Pubbed

I’ve been asked this question a lot. Why did you self publish Impending Reveries? And I’d love to tell you all why.

Over the last year or so, I’ve made a lot of author friends. They have helped me to grow as a writer and as a person. I couldn’t have done any of this without them. But seeing their struggles has taught me a lot more. I’ve witnessed the horror stories of publishing. Publishers who don’t pay what’s promised. Editors who rewrite the work without permission. No notification of release date. And more.

Watching my friends go through this made me realize something. Yes, these aren’t the norm, but they DO happen. I write because I love to write. I publish to make money and to let others enjoy my imaginings. It also gives me a great sense of accomplishment to finish a story. So, if I can accomplish all of that without the chance of these horror stories happening to me, why shouldn’t I do it?
