Now with the advancement in technology, anyone can publish a book on their own and establish themselves as one of the best sellers. Previously there have been many amazing writers and storytellers but most of them never got any platform to share and publish their work. Finding a publisher was a difficult task, and if someone accepted the book deal, it could be hard to make a living out of it. Traditional publishing still works but often for already established authors. New writers can find themselves helpless with their book because the company takes all the control. In some cases, it’s great because publishing companies know how to sell the book and make a profile but often authors find themselves vulnerable because they have to work according to the publisher guidelines. The freedom to write what an author wants to share is frequently controlled by the publishing house.
If you have written a book or are thinking about it. Here are some of the benefits of self-publishing a book.
- Creative Control
While self-publishing a book, you will have control over every aspect. From writing, narratives, editing, hiring, printing, and more. If your desire is freedom of what you do and to be known for it, self-publishing is a brilliant idea. For beginners, working with a mentor or independent book publisher can be a great start. We have been working closely with Manhattan Book Group and have had great results on our book. They are one of the top hybrid book publishers in the world and ranked as the #1 independent book publisher in NYC by Kev’s best. Manhattan Book Group will ensure your success as the best-seller status, provide a great PR placement on NBC, CBS, and Fox affiliate websites.
- Passive Income
In the traditional way of publishing, an author has to depend on royalties. When the publishing house sells a certain number of books that ensure their recovery of investment, then the writer will be paid 7% to 15% of sales. This is a time-consuming process to get benefited financially and often with no guarantee. But with Self-publishing, you will be able to earn from the first sale of the book. Once the book starts to perform well on an online platform it will be shown as a recommendation to millions of audiences. This boosts sales, visibility and provides passive income to the author.
- Publish any time
Publishing houses rarely publish books of new authors, and they are usually money-oriented. In case you get accepted, it might take a year or two to get your book out on the market. Fantasy stories might be OK but in some niches, the content might not be relevant in a year or two. While self-publishing, an author has a guaranteed platform to publish the work and an option to edit and re-release. Another great benefit of self-publishing is pricing control. You can make it affordable to everyone and build their interest in your next book. With this way of publishing, an author will be able to understand and experience everything by themselves rather than being dependent on a publishing house.
