					Self Publishing is the future.
Have you ever finished a book that possesses a lot of potential, yet can’t find a company willing
to publish it? If so, why not self publish it yourself? I mean, if you have a capital to publish a few
thousand copies, you can actually control all the aspects of the publishing process, from the
Book’s cover design, format, price tag, distribution, marketing, and PR. Of course, if you’re not
up to some of its tedious tasks, you can outsource them to some companies willing to give the
services, but all in all, you are in control.

Self Publishing isn’t as difficult as it was before.
This is due to technical advancements, like print-On-Demand, making it possible for you to only
print your book whenever there is an order, which in turn makes it less costly and the copy
printed can match the quality of the classic publishers. Also, the marketing and distribution of
your books are made much easier with online Retailing, since most of the consumers nowadays
prefer purchasing in an online environment, eliminating the physical exertion of going out and
traveling. You can even earn money when they purchase the e-book version of your work, and
you don’t even have to shell out dollars printing them; you just have to wait for them to
download it and you’ll get profit just the same.

Furthermore on top of that , when you’re self publishing your books, the production can be
ready in a matter of weeks, unlike the traditional, where the process may take years. You’ll even
need an agent if you plan to approach a publishing house.

Basically, the stigma of self publishing had already decreased all throughout the years, for its
most practical reasons, and also because most of the best-selling authors in the industry had
chosen self publishing.

Still, the only disadvantage that can be easily seen with self publishing is that it’s
tedious work, since you are the one responsible for everything.

But its advantages would be more than enough reason to press on and let the whole world see
your masterpiece.
