If you are a budding author wanting to publish your own book, you may or may not be aware that traditional publishing is not the only avenue to getting your book into the marketplace. After all that time and effort of coming up with an idea and putting it into words, you can finally get it to print, out onto the shelves of major bookstores and made available online around the world.


‘Do it yourself’ publishing has grown significantly in the past 5 years and it is predicted that it will continue to grow as authors realise there are many great advantages. Self-publishing companies can now offer authors a number of services so they can publish and promote their work, bypassing the traditional and time consuming method of finding an agent and pitching to a traditional publishing house. This process can take months, if not years whereas if you publish your own book with a reputable self-publishing company, it is much quicker. You will also gain much more control over the process rather than being kept in the dark, and you’ll retain all of your author rights, not to mention it is more affordable. Thanks to the increasing popularity of e-book technology, writers can also reach their audiences without any printing at all.


Below are just some of the reasons you may want to self publish your own book:


  • If you are writing for a small niche, and you know your book has limited appeal.

  • You want to commemorate a family event.

  • Traditional publishers have already turned you down.

  • You believe that self publishing has more advantages.

  • You’re on a budget.


Publicising your Book


Record numbers of books are published every year, so when you publish your own book, it is important that you go in with an open mind, knowing just how competitive the market is. Once you’ve gone through the publishing process and your book has been made available, this is actually the beginning. To maximise the sales of your book you’re going to need to choose a number of platforms to promote it effectively. Thanks to the internet, there are so many ways to publicise your book whether that includes the creation of a website, video links, radio interviews or social media accounts. There is also the opportunity to contact magazines and newspapers, attend events and get in touch with reading groups.
