Why bother getting a publisher?

Again, I have published on my Goodreads blog, an article about my reading/writing experience. A short excerpt:

There are a lot of talented authors who decide to self publish for many reasons. Some want all the profits for themselves. Some are not interested in playing the painful games required to get an agent and/or publisher...

Goodreads Blog

Hi there, I am linking and posting a partial of my blog that I am doing for my new book Schizo. It is on Goodreads.

Here is a partial excerpt:

First, a brief intro.

I am an Emergency Physician. And I write. I have always been writing. I recall in 2nd grade and for a few years, instead of buying a card for my grandmother, I wrote my own--creating my own poems for the inside. I wish she saved them!

Also, please pre-order my book on Amazon.

Pre-Order on Amazon

PRE-ORDER

Amazon site has been created with pre-order capability. Please pre-order and help my rank get started before launch.

Here's a teaser for the book:

In the same vein as Robin Cook and Michael Palmer, Dr. Ilene B. Benator crafts a terrifying medical thriller that is sure to excite.

An ambitious future surgeon on his psychiatry rotation is assigned a patient who reveals to him information about an organized plot to control the population. His pursuit of the truth leads him to become a psychiatric patient in the same facility.

Dan Greenberg was a promising medical student who was derailed by Catherine--a bizarre schizophrenic patient whose delusions about patients in danger at hospitals all around Chicago were startlingly specific.

Drawn by both curiosity and compassion, Dan investigates, discovering that they were exactly where Catherine said they would be. Who are these people? Why are they in danger? Are they connected with each other?

While incarcerated, he joins forces with an unlikely ally Jake--who murdered his family during a drug-induced psychotic break, but is also a charming hacker with street smarts who creates a plan to get Dan's life back. In his attempts to do so, he threatens to uncover a conspiracy to track and manipulate the population by a cabal of influential people who will do anything to keep their plot secret. He will learn just how far powerful people will go to stay in control, and the high price of the truth.

Schizo takes readers on a wildly unexpected journey into the what-ifs of medical science. Written by an Emergency Physician, Ilene B. Benator crafts situations that are terrifying, yet all too believable.
