It gives writers heart, not to mention hope. Yes we can. And, yet, the decision to self-publish is an individual one that raises questions with no easy answers.

Much has evolved since my own foray into publishing a digital edition of my short story collection, SHOES HAIR NAILS, only a year and a half ago. So when Caitlyn Levin put out a call for open submissions on the theme of self-publishing, I thought I would re-post something I wrote that brings some perspective to the subject and (hopefully) seems as relevant today as when I first published it.
