Here are several good reasons to self publish your own writing. It is a profitable way to elevate your writing career to the next level. No need to have a big publishing house involved when you can do it yourself. Ebooks are all the rage and there is no reason that you can’t get in on it and what better way that by being your own publisher?

  • You keep a larger percentage of the price of the book. You are the one who spends those long hours working hard to research and write your  material so you should be reaping the most rewards from it. With self publishing, you should be about to retain up to 80% of the price of the book in some cases.

 

  • There are very few obstacles. All you need is a computer, software to write with, internet accessabilty, a basic idea for subject matter, and the time and passion to write.

 

  • Less time from the formulation of the book idea, writing it, to publishing it in the marketplace. This can take as little as a few weeks or months.

 

  • Become a recognized authority and help your career take off. Having a published book is not something that everyone will do in their lifetime. Having a book that is published is a great way to promote yourself and is even better than the traditional resume.

 

  • You are in charge of your own marketing and selling of your book. This is a good thing because the publisher will market a lot while the book is new and then it will drop off after a few months. This way you can make sure to keep the momentum of your book and profits going.

 

  • Because of the internet, the process is very fast so you can market and sell books all over the world. A single person can manage their own self publication operations very successfully to the worldwide audience.
