How do I Decide Among the Many Publishing Paths?

Should I seek a traditional publisher? Should I self-publish? Something in-between? Hard copy? E book? Both? I'm not asking what path I should take -- I'm asking for criteria for making that decision.

A. Here's what I know about the Agent/Publisher & the Self-Publisher
They only want and promote big names.They want people who can travel and market well.They spend only a few months with a new author--book toursYou must pay back all advances for book tours and their minimal promotionThey do not promote the author at all. You must do the PR yourself.

For Self-Publishing:
You keep all the profitsYou have all the control, cover/title. You can sub out work you don't know how to doYou can print your books through POD-I recommend Deharts.com. Printing costs can be under $400 so more money for promotion.
