Frankly I don't see the point. By self-publishing my work I can get the books out faster. And in an article I read recently on the self-publishing keeping control of your work is important because by doing so you can track how it is selling. By doing this, you know when to run specials and target to your audience with ads.
And so long as I maintain quality of the text there's really no reason why I need a publisher.
So later this year Book 2 of the Aglaril Cycle will be released. Watch this blog and my web site, feitelberg.net for details.
