Traditional Publishing versus Self-publishing
The publishing world has changed dramatically over the past few decades. With the ease of self-publishing now, why would you even consider traditional publishing?
- The traditional publisher shoulders the expense of production,
- With a team of professionals at their disposal, a traditional publisher can produce a more commercially competitive product than you can on your own.
- The traditional publisher will handle the distribution and order fulfillment for you, and
- They will take care of the broad strokes when it comes to marketing and promoting the book.
