Why Should You Self-publish?

There are many reasons you should consider self-publishing. For one, self-publishing is one of the most popular and rapidly growing factions of the publishing industry. Self-publishing gives you the power to be in control, to oversee the entire process right from the creative and technical aspects of book making to the distribution and selling. Further, since self-published authors pay the full cost of creating their books, they bear the sole rights for their books and also have the power to … [Read more...]

Promoting Your eBook: Leaving Handprints In The Folds Of The Internet

So, you finally took that step forward and completed your manuscript. Days and nights of sitting in solitary resoluteness, being cut off from the whirlwind of the outside world, and hammering away at the keyboard until the words started to grow and tumble off those piling Word Doc pages, have finally led you to be in possession of a fresh, new, inventive novel, novella, collection of letters or anecdotes or essays, childrens lit, cookery, self-help, or what-have-you manuscript.

The Finesse Of The Final Cut by Helga Schier

It seemed that the industry's gatekeepers agents and editors and publishers didn't even look at your work unless you had amazing pedigree or a publication list a mile long. A first-time writer had a better chance of winning the lottery than getting published. The self-publishing revolution changed things.

Rear-view, Front-view

With the New Year, the publishing world is ushering in a lot of challenges and exciting opportunities, albeit in unsymmetrical measures.

On Self-Publishing: An Author’s Personal Journey by Uma Girish

I'm no different than any of you, my fellow writers. I too fantasized about that magical email dropping into my Inbox the one from The Agent who had sold my manuscript to a top-notch publishing house just moments ago for a seven-figure advance. The email never arrived. I had two options: 1) Rename myself Loser 2) Show the world what self-belief looked like. I chose the latter. I chose to self-publish. And in choosing to self-publish, I chose myself. The most important wisdom lesson … [Read more...]

The View From Cover Point

  Don't judge a book by its cover, they say, and yet the hordes of us unfastidious and eclectic readers alike, who walk into bookshops or slide our facile forefingers on nifty tablets, are wont to swoon over alluring, sometimes even racy, cover art, going to the extent of acting on impulse and picking up an unheard-of book solely on account of it.
