When you have written a book and want to publish it, there are two different options available to you. The first option is to find a publishing company that can do everything for you or you can self-publish your book. Both options have their pros and cons and one option may be better than the other, depending on your needs and what you want out of your book.
If you are considering self-publishing, here are few of the many perks that you will want to keep in mind:
- Creative Control
One of the main reasons why you will want to consider self-publishing is creative control. A publisher may have certain aspects of your story changed or they may not allow you to choose the cover art, and so much more. However, these are aspects that you will be able to control when you self-publish. This is important because you may have parts of your story that a publisher may disagree with and have you change it, but in reality, it is something that the readers would love. Many famous books have been rejected by publishers because of certain aspects of their stories but ended up becoming huge hits.
- Test Runs
If this is your first book, having it self-published will allow you to create a limited run in order to judge how people like it. This can help you decide if you want to go all out and find a publisher that can mass produce the book or keep it within your friends and family.
- Potentially More Profit
If you are interested in selling your book, self-publishing could net you more profit. This is because all of the profits will go straight into your pocket. If you have a publisher, they will receive a percentage. However, it is important to know that a publisher has the capabilities of getting the book into the hands of thousands if not millions of people. If you want to go the self-publishing route, you will need to become familiar with marketing. However, Bookwhip can help you throughout the entire process.
Those are just a few of the many perks of self-publishing your own book. If you would like to find out more about this or about finding good publishers, please do not hesitate to get in touch with Bookwhip for more information today.
