Why you should self-publish?

Before the age of the internet, it was very hard for indie authors to make their works known to the public. Moreover, it was equally hard to be recognized by traditional publishers. J.K Rowling, for example, has been known to be rejected so many times before landing a contract with a publisher. The iconic Harry Potter was written in an age when the internet was just starting.

Nowadays, the competition is getting tough among authors. Submitting manuscripts to different traditional publishers and getting contacted by them have become a rare chance. However, with the age of digital media the chances of getting a bigger exposure has been greatly widened. Self-publishing for authors can easily be done without the hassle of lining up to submit their manuscripts to traditional publishers.

On the other hand, self-publishing means the author needs to invest some money in order to put out his work. But to weigh the pros and cons, self-publishing will give more chances for the author to be known in a quicker manner. Self-publishing will also give the author the total control over his works. The copyright will be preserved and the royalties are way higher than traditional publishing. The catch is, there are several institutions that take advantage of authors who get into self-publishing.
