You are an one of those rare finds! As an adaptable and highly creative writer, you would find success as an indie author or as a traditionally published author!
Your ability to take direction from a literary agent/PUBLICIST/editor and other team members would make you valuable to those sponsoring your work. The energy and enthusiasm you would put into this is equal to the effort with which you'd direct your own self-publishing efforts. Basically, either way you will rock it!
