Publishing as an independent author opens more doors for you than you may have anticipated. There are many advantages to self-publishing compared to the “traditional” route, but here are four reasons it’s a wiser route for talented writers.
1. Self-published books are dominating the market.
It is estimated that self-published books account for nearly half of the publishing market share, and the skyrocketing popularity seems unstoppable. As readers and reviewers catch on to the improving quality of independently published books, that share seems likely to grow.
2. There is an audience for your book traditional publishers ignore.
Traditional publishing houses won’t take even small risks—they want a sure thing. They want the Stephen Kings and John Grishams of the world or tired but proven formulas that sell. Well, those books have already been written! As your own publisher, you can take a chance on a truly unique story that’s all you, not a formulaic plot with an editor’s idea of the “Hollywood ending.”
3. You reap more financial rewards.
Authors who publish via the traditional route are paid about one-fourth of the proceeds from the sale of their books. Not bad if you sell 10 million copies. But most authors—even wildly successful ones—don’t sell millions of copies. Self-publishing authors keep more of their royalties with fewer sales. In fact, once publishing and printing costs are out of the way, it’s all profit. At Outskirts Press, authors keep 100% of their royalties.
4. Self-published authors control their creativity.
When you self-publish, you’re never at the mercy of an editor who cares only about the bottom line. The creative direction is in your hands, along with the pricing, the marketing approach and every other important decision regarding your book. The integrity of your work is never compromised.
