Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is Self Publishing?
Self-publishing empowers authors to take complete ownership of their literary creations by overseeing the entire publishing process independently. In contrast to traditional publishing, self-publishing offers unparalleled freedom and control to authors, allowing them to steer the creative direction and selling strategies of their work. By choosing self-publishing, authors retain full rights over their intellectual property while reaping all profits generated solely from their hard work and talent. This approach not only grants authors unmatched creative autonomy but also ensures that they receive just compensation for their literary endeavors.
What are the advantages of Self-Publishing?
Self-publishing offers authors a world of opportunities that traditional publishing might not. The ability to publish a book on your terms, with guided support, and have it available for global distribution is unmatched. One of the biggest advantages of self-publishing is the lower investment required compared to traditional publishing. With print-on-demand services, authors can minimize their costs and only print copies as they are needed, reducing financial risks. For authors looking for creative control, faster time-to-market, and higher royalties, self-publishing is undeniably the way to go. The freedom and flexibility it provides can empower writers to bring their stories to life without compromising on quality or reach.
