To Traditional or Self-Publish? That is the Question

I always thought I was going to publish traditionally because that is what I thought everyone did. You sent out your manuscript, you got hundreds of rejection letters and then someone realized what a masterpiece you have written and said “We will publish your book; here is a check.” Self-publishing was not even a choice I thought about. When I had the idea for my novel, self-publishing was just getting started, I barely understood self-publishing and what I did understand made me think people put out books that looked like pamphlets and not actual books. Then I started doing research.
