Self Publishing a Book: The Pros and Cons

You’ve written a book and you’re eager to see it in print. But should you self publishing a book or go the traditional route? It’s a tough decision to make, but luckily, we’re here to help. In this blog post, we’ll outline some of the pros and cons of self-publishing so that you can make an informed decision about what’s best for you and your book. 

The Pros of Self Publishing 

There are many advantages to self-publishing, chief among them being that you retain complete control over your book. When you self-publish, you get to decide how your book looks, what the cover looks like, how it’s marketed, and everything else in between. You also keep 100% of the royalties, which means more money in your pocket. Finally, self-publishing is generally quicker and easier than going the traditional route. 

The Cons of Self Publishing 

Of course, there are also some disadvantages to self-publishing. One is that it can be costly—you have to pay for editing, cover design, formatting, and all of the other necessary steps to get your book ready for publication. Additionally, without the backing of a traditional publisher, it can be difficult to get bookstores to stock your title and people to take you seriously as an author. 


As you can see, there are pros and cons to both self-publishing and traditionally publishing a book. It’s important to weigh all of your options before making a decision so that you can choose what’s best for you and your career as an author. Thanks for reading!
