Publishing and Comments

Hello all, I've posted a few chapters of the book I wrote to get some feedback. This is hopefully my last revision before I self publish. Though I might try the old fashion way as well.

The book is the first part in a seven part series. I have the entire series laid out and outlined and have significant information laid out to create an immersive fictional world.

I have a couple questions that I would like to ask in this discussion:
1. Has anyone used a professional editor before self publishing?
2. Has anyone gone the traditional publishing route?

The last item I'd like to discuss is comments.

Please leave any comments you'd like, but what I am looking for are comments on the story itself.

I haven't taken any writing classes, and am not a grammar savant. I am just a guy who loves to write.

Now that's a proper critique and hard, fair and good advice.

The one draw back for me about E-books, Kindle & such is that 'anyone' can publish. For example there's a guy who puts out fabulous, professional covers and calls himself Stephen King. The type face is even similar, very much similar, in-fact. But he is not the Stephen King. a fact that is painfully evident once you start suffering......I mean reading.

There are also some excellent stories and ideas but the writing is not to the standard you would expect.
Never sharpen fish in the presence of doves........
