There is a survey out on self publishing that I have put together to gather anonymous data to use to help those authors attempting to self publish. If you guys could take a moment to complete this survey, even if you haven't self published it would be very helpful.

Click here to start.

So did I.

There seemed to be a repeat question. Might have misread something even though I read it twice but I think there was one.


Doesn't take long.

I did it too though I think I will mess up your statistics considering languages... [Wink]

Thanks guys. The survey varies in length depending on your answers to certain questions. If there is a repeat question, that may be why. Or, I just asked it twice. [Smile]

I don't mind the languages being added.

I will share the results. I will post a link to the blog post here when I write it. I am hoping for 100 completed surveys. Right now I have 58. If I get to 100 by Saturday, I should be blogging on the topic Sunday. If not, I will do it next week.

Thanks again to everyone who competed it, and I know some of you must be sharing it with others. Thanks.

Exactly what is this for? Like, for you personally?

I'm slightly curious.

I've had a lot of people email me about self publishing and asking if I would blog about how successful it is. Since success is a measurment we define for ourselves, I thought I would put together this survey to show people the numbers and let people decide for themselves if Self Publishing is for them or not.

Thanks for your help everyone. The blog is up. The results and some thoughts from Me, and fellow Hatrack Author, Robert S. Wilson are up.

Robert has self published and I am thinking about it. So we each offer a unique view on these results.

Thanks again. THE POST IS HERE

Dean is always looking for self pub statistics. Send him an email. I am positive that he will reply.

I had been very involved in writing today, but I just sent him an email now. Thanks for letting me know. It took a lot of work to get that put together, so I am eager to share it with anyone who may want to read it.
