Hello everyone, I would like to preface this blog post by telling all of you the interview today went very well! I believe I put out a good name for my novel and I hope it encourages all of you to read it! You can check out my interview on this Monday’s issue of UCCS’s The Scribe paper.
Anyway, today I will share information on how to self-publish if you choose to take this route.
One benefit is that you do not have to work around production cycles and can publish on your own time. The other benefit is the revenue that can result. While people who publish via a publishing house only receive a 5-20% royalty.
You also own all the rights of the book and do not have to worry about changes. Something common to the world of screenwriting. This is also one of the primary reasons I pivoted to novel writing.
Other benefits include finding your target audience and being able to see if your book has some legs. You can also control every aspect of your novel and you are the captain of your ship, so to say. Finally, you can leave a legacy. Something I encouraged with previous posts.
If you want me to continue this series, I will. So you can be well on your way to publishing your first novel!
Till next time.
