So far, I like my current publisher and editor quite a lot. Havng one's book published can be real fun if you're working with people who get what your stuff is about.
I like getting published, having people read my tales who don't know me already. Sometimes, one even makes a little money at it.
The only thing I have against publishing is that it takes so much time from writing. At my age, I'm more careful about how I spend my time than about how I spend my money.
One can always make more money, but nobody can make more time. You can't save up your today for tomorrow. Use it wisely. Better to count the cost now than tally the loss later.
