As a writer, there comes a time in your life that you would want to be published. You would want to have the feeling—the glow, the unending flutter that settles deep in your core—that comes with seeing your books on the shelf and being read by people. That is the dream of every writer and it gets easy to achieve that dream if there are avenues available to assist.
In today’s world, book publishing is divided into two broad categories: traditional publishing and self-publishing. However, the options for publishing (or becoming published) are not nearly as straightforward as they appear. Therefore, the alternatives may seem bewildering and at times terrifying as a consequence. A breakdown of four separate publication modes is provided in the next section.
Traditionally published books are often associated with trade publishing, which is the production of publications primarily for the purpose of resale to the general public. When you publish your book traditionally, it means that it is published by an established publishing company that has a team of professional individuals who are responsible for everything from book design to sales and marketing, as well as a variety of other aspects of the publishing business.
Self-publishing is when an author completes the full publishing process on their own, including printing, editing, proofreading, formatting, cover design, and book promotion. This is done without the aid of a formal publisher. Self-publishing leaves all the control in the author’s hands, but that means the author also assumes all the expenses and all the risks.
It is possible that hybrid publishing will be the best option for writers who want to benefit from some of the benefits of both conventional publishing and self-publishing at the same time. A hybrid publisher, in contrast to self-publishing services, is a publisher who has achieved a satisfactory balance between conventional publishing and self-publishing.
The good news for independent writers is that there are reputable services available to assist in relieving the author’s load. Typically, self-publishing services provide a la carte services to independent writers. These services include, but are not limited to, editing, cover design, internal layout design, and marketing/promotion.
- A La Carte Services: The author pays just for the services they need and is not obligated to utilize all accessible service.
- Good self-publishing services have a lot of knowledge and experience in their field, and they know how to assist writers get their books out there.
- Author Control: The final output is still completely in the author’s control.
- Copyright and all other content remain the property of the author.
