Self publishing has become extremely popular, and for good reason! It can be much cheaper, can leave a lot of creative freedom with the author and it allows authors to work on their own timeline. What a dream!
Breathing new life into the independent publishing sector, POD has provided a reliable and accessible alternative to traditional publishing and has given authors the choice to assume full control of the process.
For better or for worse though, you’re going to have a much better chance of getting your book to a wide audience if you invest a little time and energy figuring out how things work.
