Ok, I know this is the Super Minority Opinion on this board, but why is "self-publishing it" automatically the right answer. Being a business person - as you pointed out - means making the right business decision. She's at a publisher right now. I don't know enough about the project to say that it's not something that wouldn't sell better as a Trad Published project. It could go either way.

I don't think it has anything to do with not believing in the story. It has to do with knowing what's best for your project and yourself and making sure they line up and you're happy with your decision.

*waits to have rotten tomatoes thrown at her*

I just think, as much as I love self-publishing, that it's not ALWAYS the auto-right answer for everyone and every project.
I agree with you. I have a book that is rattling around in my head that I think I'm going to have to write someday. It will be very close to my heart and very far from the genre I'm currently writing in. My gut says it would be better at a traditional publishing house. So, if I ever find the time to write it, I plan on submitting it to agents/editors. We'll see where I stand once/if I get it done. And I love self-publishing. It's my first choice for my paranormals and UFs.
