Cash flow

Dean Wesley Smith has a good article here on indie vs. traditional publishing cash flow. It's full of assumptions that may or may not be true for you, as such articles must be, but it's still worth thinking about. For me, the biggest single reason to not try traditional publishing again is the payment lag. Even assuming I could sell something to New York (and that is always a really big if), it would take me months to find a new agent, and it would take that agent months to find me a publisher, and it would take still more months for me to get a partial advance... and all that time, I could have been making money from Amazon.
