5 pieces of bad self-publishing advice

I’ve been self-publishing for a little over a year now. I don’t pretend to be an expert, but at this point in my career, I’m comfortable sharing what I think are a few pieces of bad self-publishing advice– though I think the fact that they’re bad self-publishing advice is common sense in some cases! 1.
