    Hi, I was published by a traditional publisher in Jan 2017 and thought they were going to market the book. Now I've been informed that sales are dismal and the book might go out of print. I am very disappointed. Had I realized how little marketing they would do, I would have self-published. Now the publisher is encouraging me to go out and invest in marketing, but I get a penury return (because the lion's share belongs to the publisher). Do you recommend I let it go out of print, republish indie, and then market like crazy? Please guide me...
