The Perpetual Perks of Self-publishing

Every writer’s dream is to get published. Nothing beats the feeling of reading
one’s byline from a reputable publishing firm. Writing is a creative outcome for the
struggle of silence. Toni Morrison, Nobel Prize and Pulitzer Prize-winning American
author, once said, "If there is a book that you want to read and it hasn’t been
written yet, then you must write it."

Technology’s innovation has created more gateways of publishing opportunities. The
birth of e-books, print on demand technology, marketing online tools, and the redefined
ways of information dissemination has opened multiple doors of publishing. These
developments led to the thriving expansion of the publishing industry. Given more than

own book but you—the author. 

As an author, you know your book’s purpose and for whom is it written. You plan your
own book marketing strategy. Through your marketing campaigns, you can reach closer to
your readers and build relationships. You won’t just sell your books, but you sell
yourself as an author. 

Wait No More
Competition is fierce in the publishing industry. Your book may be great but you may not
find a publisher. You can end up searching and waiting for years. But with
self-publishing, you plan your own adventure and launch it according to your schedule.

Worth the Risk Figures

Self-publishing will cause you to invest money. But no one gains without taking risks.
Self-publishing is a business. Your scores will be defined on how you’ve played the

When you decide to solely publish, you decide the price of your book and keep 100% of the

Another option is to pay a vanity press to publish your book. They pay high royalties
compared to traditional publishers.

Self-publishing as an Opportunity than a Challenge

Managing your own business takes you a lot higher than those who only wait for royalties.
Moreover, you can even help out fellow authors or newbie’s of the industry through
sharing your experience or conducting consultations. These engagements help you become a
better author, a better person. The heart may stop beating, but the ink will always flow.
