Self Publishing is Often the Best Option for Authors

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, June 26, 2012

In the past, the general feeling towards self publishing was leaning toward negative. There was, and still is in some cases, a certain level of trepidation when approaching a book that has gone straight from the author to the consumer, skipping the middle man entirely.

Mainly, this negativity stems from the belief that authors opt to self publish if they have been unsuccessful with traditional publishers. But today, this is less true as self-publishing has gone from the last option to the best option.

For one thing the book market has been on a steady decline with the revolutions of the technology market, and one of the developments that has kept reading relevant is eBook readers.

With e-books potentially leading the market from now on, traditionally published and self-published writers are on a level playing field.

In such a case, self publishing can hold many advantages above traditional publishing; a larger margin of the profit will make its way to your pocket for one thing, and there's also a certain level of freedom that accompanies managing your own book publishing.

Self-publishing allows book writing to be approached on a more personal level, even if the books aren't likely to achieve commercial success, authors can still connect with an audience on a much smaller scale.

If you, as an author, find yourself opting for or leaning toward self-publishing, contact The Country Press.
