Question: Traditional publishing or self-publishing: which is the future?

I believe self-publishing will be the future, but not so soon. There is so much upcoming authors need to achieve first before they can become self-publishers. 

One, they need to learn about formatting. You have to format your book to ebook and other formats. Second, you need to be connected. Uploading your book on Amazon is not everything, you need to make more connections. Lastly, even though you can publish your book, you will need an editor, someone you know you can trust with your book. 

So for me, self-publishing is the future but still a long way.
