What's the best part about being published?
The best part about being published is when someone tells you how much they enjoyed your work. When they want your autograph or a picture with you. It's moments like those that make you feel like "This was worth it."

I am currently self published. I was originally published through a publishing company for my first book.

Highs of self publishing: being in complete control of your royalties.
Highs of a publishing company: they have access to channels that help with marketing.
