The "Golden Age" of Self Publishing

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, June 05, 2012

The self-publishing seminar attracted panels and exhibitors offering the latest developments in the self-publishing field. At the seminar, the “The How, What, Where, and When of Print and EBooks” session heard that 2012 is part of the “golden age of self-publishing.” And there are stats to back that claim.
 
According to the newest figures of self published books produced, last year there were 211,269 self-published titles released, up from 133,036 in 2010.

The most popular genre in units sold is fiction (45%), but the nonfiction genre leads in sales (38%).

While e-books sold more of the percentage of books, paperbacks and hard covered books have the large percentage of sales.

Although the dream of most writers is to be signed by a major publisher and becoming a bestseller, more authors are becoming successful through self-publishing. Rather than carrying a stigma like in the past, self publishing portrays that an author wants to take things into their own hands.

Now that self-publishing can be profitable, and since it has been made more convenient, thought leaders, entrepreneurs, and story tellers have more means than ever to get their word out. To get your word out, contact The Country Press.
