Pros and Cons of Self-Publishing

 

If you read my previous post about what independent publishing is then you’re probably wondering if you should independently publish or not.

Here are the pros and cons:

Pros

  • You retain all the rights to your work.
  • You can publish your book very quickly in print or in e-book format.
  • You have full control over your project.
  • You control over the entire process from publication to marketing.
  • You can choose the editor, formatter and cover designer yourself.

Cons

  • You don’t have any help from a publishing company.
  • You have to do the work yourself.
  • You have to pay for any costs such as editing, formatting and cover design.
  • Some people think you are only credible if you go through a traditional publisher.
  • Getting your book into bookshops and libraries is much harder.
  • You may not sell as many books.
