Self-publishing and traditional publishing have several distinct differences. Self-publishing is when an author books directly prints and sells their work without going through a publishing house. Conversely, traditional publishing is when an author produces their book through a third-party publisher. One benefit of traditional publishing is that readers may trust in the legitimacy of the publisher’s brand. Self-publishing gives authors more control over the outcome and offers more direct access to readers. In this video, we will provide great advice and useful tips for authors considering both traditional and self-publishing in order to help you make an informed decision.
