Today authors have much more options when it comes to choosing how they publish, distribute and reach people with their work. As you may already know, due to significant developments in the industry like the emergence of Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing, during the past 10 years or so, there has been a great increase in the number of people who have chosen the self-publishing route.
We have made this infographic to give you a solid overview of the both choices at your disposal. You’ll find laid out the benefits and drawbacks of traditional publishing as well as the benefits and drawbacks of self-publishing.
You will also see that we have included a ‘hybrid’ option – self-publishing some books and publishing others through a publishing house. This may be the optimal route for some.
