I’m going to be honest here, I’m well into my retirement but I have been writing for years. A friend of mine asked why I do try to get published and I laughed, no one is going to want to publish someone like me. But then I though why not? So, what’s the pitfalls and benefits to older writers of self publishing against the traditional model. I don’t think I’ve the time left in my life to be wasted trying to find a traditional publisher, but what do others think?
