Follow your path - like a boss (because you're the boss)

This is a subject I bring back every once in a while - because every once in a while drama happens, in our own niche, or the publishing industry in general, which can be bewildering to readers.

I think it's important to remember that we make choices along the way - traditionally published, hybrid or indie. Amazon exclusive or wide, Kindle Unlimited or no Kindle Unlimited. Sometimes, we change gears along the way. The question is always, what's the best way to bring stories to the people? Make it easy for readers to find the books they want, and provide access.

Different authors make different choices. Being exclusive to Amazon saves time, but it's not for everyone. Authors who already are successful on multiple retailer sites understandably won't go back. On the other hand, if you had good experiences with Kindle Unlimited, there's no point in leaving unless there's a plan B. There is no 100% perfect forever solution, but what works best at the time.

Being your own boss and acting like it means to identify your path and go for it, and respect that your choices might not be the same as someone else's.

Less drama, more focus that way.
