Self-publishing is the fastest growing segment of the book publishing industry. Authors find it attractive for many reasons:
- Publishing companies are difficult to approach and it is difficult for an author to be heard.
- Getting responses from conventional publishers is time consuming with no assurance of the manuscript getting accepted.
- With self-publishing you eliminate all such hurdles. You know you are going to be heard and your voice will carry weight. You will be involved in different aspects of the book publishing process, leading up to the final published copy.
- As a self-published author, you either publish the book yourself or take help from a professional self-publishing company, like ours. In this instance the author pays the publishing company to handle the publishing process for them. Self-publishing services commonly include designing the book cover, interior layout or page setting, editing of the manuscript, assigning ISBN, marketing and distribution and much more.
