There are pros and cons to both


Publishing Company - Cons
  • They tend to nitpick
  • Very little creative freedom
Self Publishing - Cons
  • You have to do your own marketing and promotions (paid and free)


Publishing Company - Pros
  • They do the marketing
  • More publicity with TV and radio appearances
  • Everything is professionally done
  • Paid book signings
Self Publishing - Pros
  • Lot more creative freedom
  • You can set your own deadlines for book releases
  • More of a proud feeling because you did everything yourself


In some ways both are very much alike
But I like my freedom, so I would still go with self publishing

I'm not really sure. Considering I'm going to be self-publishing my own book in the coming months, maybe if someone came to me and wanted me to go the traditional route and promised me a good amount of money, I'd do it. MAYBE. I honestly don't know much about it and I honestly don't know if my book is going to be good enough to make any money at all.

I would rather choose a publishing company to publish my books. Well, first of all, I don't have the much-needed budget for self-publishing, and if your work has been accepted by a publishing company, you don't have to worry about how to market your books. You have just got to seat back, relax, and let them do the rest.

But if you are a kind of person who has got the money and the skills, and if you are willing to take a risk, then self-publishing could be an ideal choice for you.

You can self publish for free with self publishing sites. Only when your book is ordered do the print it and you earn royalties. It is a great way to start out as it does not cost you anything whereas many publishers won't money from you. I think it is important to do your research and make sure that you are well educated on how to make a success of this publishing method before you run with it. Many sear by it even a few well known authors.
