With the gaining popularity of ebooks, self-published authors are scaling new heights than ever before in history. With the relative ease with which ebooks can be uploaded, accessed and sold has made it a roaring success.
Furthermore, with the advent of print-on-demand, self-published writers don’t have to worry about crate loads of books lying about and don’t have to invest a lot of money either.
With platforms like Amazon, self published authors are at a level ground with traditionally published or famous authors. The self published authors have a great advantage over the traditionally published author in terms of pricing and royalty.
A self published author can price his/her book at 99cents and still make a profit but a traditionally published author cannot.
Therefore, it’s up to self-published authors to make the most of this opportunity and take their creativity and ideas to a new level with the help of great inventions like kindle, nook, etc.
