Blog for writers

I am currently in the process of publishing another book and at the stage of having to choose a cover design. And because I have spent countless hours perusing pictures and talking to my graphic designer about the concept I want for the cover of my book, sometimes I feel like I should just design the cover myself.
And to a great degree, I am doing just that. Because I've chosen to self-publish, that means I not only wear the role of the writer of my book, but also the role of the publisher, which means I am responsible for ensuring my manuscript is properly edited, formatted and has a great cover design before I submit it for publication.
Choosing to self-publish my book is a route I chose to take because I felt doing so would give me the best return on the time and energy I invested writing my book. I also felt that I had the skill set required to get my book ready for publication. What about you? Is self-publishing your manuscript a publishing route that is right for you?
