Self-Publishing Gets Your Book in the Hands of Readers

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Do you have an idea that you would like to get into a printed book? A publishing company can help a developing writer publish a book. However, more want-to-be authors are turning to self-publishing as their preferred way of publishing a book. So how about using a publishing company that offers self-publishing services as well.

These days, it’s easier than ever to get your story to the people who want to read it. With the rise of self-publishing and all forms of indie publishing, you can do it yourself. People choose self-publishing for many reasons, the biggest reason being that they would prefer to maintain control of their book. Many writers prefer to control their own work from an artistic and business standpoint.

Beyond this, there are plenty of other reasons writer would prefer to self-publish:

  • Lower publishing cost.
  • Self-publishing allows an author to maximize their books ‘earnings.
  • Self-publishing allow you to market to a small, specific demographic that you have direct access to.

Or, perhaps a traditional publisher has turned you down. If you are unknown, a publisher may not take an interest. There have been plenty of recent New York Times bestsellers who were initially turned down by publishing houses and became self-published books. In fact, half of Amazon’s top 10 best-sellers last year started as self-published books.

Self-published books used to bear the vanity press stigma and steep costs but now, independent publishing is quickly becoming the preferred road to readers for many authors. Self-publishing is getting easier and the success stories are becoming more prevalent, causing self-publishing to gain in popularity.
