The Wednesday Five: Publishing Process (June 19)

Leave a comment

Note: The Daily Word does not take the stance that one type of publishing is superior or inferior to any other. Many Wednesdays the majority of The Daily Five is devoted to self-publishing, but only because indie publishing is so popular right now; there is more fresh content on self-publishing (versus traditional publishing) to choose from. We do attempt to split the day’s content equally between both publishing avenues.
