Renaissance in Publishing – Self Publishing

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, February 05, 2013

If you want to be a published writer and you don't mind publishing yourself, these are very good times. One recent survey found that the number of self-published books in the U.S. has almost tripled in the past six years. As eBooks become easier to create and distribute, more and more services are popping up to help you do that.

There has always been a stigma associated with self-publishing. Five years ago self-publishing was seen as the option of last resort. It was seen as the option for failed writers. And the publishing industry held that view, and even writers held that view.

But that's changing now. Self-publishing is now becoming the option of first choice for many writers. And even traditional publishers now have new found respect for self-publishing. They're using the self-publishing bestseller lists to troll for new authors to acquire.

Traditionally, publishers are in the business of selling books. So they seek to acquire books and authors who they think have the greatest commercial potential. But the challenge here is they really don't know which books are going to go on to become bestsellers. Only readers know that.
And so in the attempt to only choose the cream of the crop, many potential breakout bestsellers are being excluded. And those books are now going to self-publishing.

It is possible that we are at the very early stages of renaissance in publishing. Over the next few years, readers will have the opportunity to discover and enjoy more great books than ever before, more books that match their unique interests, and books will become more available to more readers around the world.
