Authors, Here are 3 Reasons to Self-publish your Next Book

There’s something empowering and rewarding about choosing to self-publish your own work. Don’t let intimidation hold you back, some of the most popular writers of our time are self-published authors (did you know EL James, who sold 150 million copies of 50 Shades of Gray, self-published?)

Here are some reasons why you should consider self-publishing your next book.

1. Flexibilty:

You’ll have complete control over the content you publish as well as the design and format of your book. Making all the decisions means you will produce a product that aligns with your vision. Traditional publishing can also take a long time, while self-publishing allows you to establish your own schedule. You’ll also be able to experiment with different pricing options and marketing strategies – if something isn’t working, you’ll be able to implement changes immediately.

2. Lower Production Costs & Higher Earnings:

Publishers take a large portion of your books earnings and they also determine the quantity of copies printed. Self publishing can eliminate the possibility of sitting with excess stock, plus it offers a better financial return with lower upfront costs and the opportunity to print on demand.

3. Accessibility:
