What is self-publishing and why YOU should become a self-published author

25 Sep

we_want_youWhy should you become a self-published author?

Are you sick and tired of trying to make a career out of writing and getting rejected by large publishing houses? Are you a business owner who wants to make your business more dignified? What about a new mother who would like to share her baby experiences?  Are you a student who has just majored in English Literature and are having a difficult time landing a job?

Self-publishing is for everyone.  You don’t necessarily need to be a well-known author to become self-published.  Becoming a self-published author is actually quite easy if you follow the basic steps.

What is self-publishing?  Self-publishing is when an author (YOU) becomes in complete control of your works of art.  Not only do you have complete control of your writing, but you also get to keep more of your royalties.  You don’t need to pay an expensive agent who takes the majority of your earnings.  By becoming a self-published author you can make more of a profit when creating your eBook or book in print all by yourself.

How does it work?  Basically, after following a few simple steps and guidelines from Bugle Boy Publishing Co. (that’s us!) you can learn how to become a self-published author.  Let’s face it- Waterstones and Amazon already take a small % of earnings (as well as other book stores), but if you had already gotten your book published at a very expensive publishing house or print on demand service you would be left with pennies!  Self-publishing is for everyone!  Yes, sure…people might not like your book.  But, could you imagine if you spent loads of money on Createspace or other Print on Demand websites and the vast majority of the people STILL did not like your work?  You’d be out of a lot of money.

And, let’s face it…if you are not well established or well known, you are more than likely not going to bag an agent to help you get your foot in the door at these large publishing companies.

Why don’t you just take the time to figure out how to do it ALL on your own?  Follow this blog and/or my website and see how it all can be done in just a few short steps.  Of course, we can publish your eBook or book for you- but wouldn’t you like to learn how to do it on your own as well?  You should see how many FAMOUS authors have actually self-published their very own books.  You would be shocked!
