[Approximate Reading Time : 3 mins]
When you decide to self-publish a book you believe in, you have both opportunities and challenges. One of the biggest challenges to self-publishing success is the stigma that sometimes comes with this pathway. While this is fading due to the recent successes of strong, high-quality self-published books, it still needs to be addressed. The answer to this challenge is to produce a book of professional quality in all aspects of publishing: cover design, editing, layout and distribution.
Technology Is Your Ally
Advances in technology have had an impact on a high percentage of self-published authors, up to 84 percent of fiction authors according to one study. The new concept of end-to-end publishing can help you meet many of the challenges by offering a comprehensive list of services:
- Project management
Through smarter use of technology, your book stands a better chance of meeting high professional standards. This makes your book more appealing to consumers.
Placement Is Key
Another challenge is to make sure your book has a way of getting seen by consumers. Finding a way to get noticed on your own is a lot of hard work and it is not always successful. Look for a company that is able to hook you up with a placement strategy, such as extended distribution to e-tailers, to make your book visible.
