I have no interest in Trad publishing. That may change in the future- who knows, but for now, I want to have full control of the entire process and retain all my rights.
I was looking at the latest authors Earnings report, and according to them, 75% of Fantasy sales on Amazon are Ebooks. Of that about 40% are indie, so there definitely is a market out there, and with KDP select, it's easy for people to try new authors without having to shell out anything.
It may take longer to build up a following, but that's all part of the fun.

Although I still feel very independent, I would, perhaps, consider an Amazon imprint. Not for the series I'm writing now, but perhaps for a future series. I feel they could do more to promote a book than traditional publishers—although in some ways the Amazon imprints are traditional.
