Why I self publish

WRITES: It may be of interest to my sister writers that because of my age
I've decided to self publish or partnership publish. My reasons are clear.
1. I don't feel I have the time or energy left to go through the hassles of finding a publisher.
2. I trust Spectrum, and have a long connection with them - as the dedication in this book shows.
3. By self publishing I have much greater control over the finished product. Very important for my work.
4. And probably most important. 'Frail age' limits just about everything else. e.g. I don't drive - glaucoma.
Travel exhausts etc etc. etc...So writing is a reason to get out of bed every morning. Sounds pompous.
But my experience in respite care after my last near-death health scare was enlightening.
