Within the past years, self-publishing has become an increasingly common and respected publishing venture for independent authors that don’t want to work with a traditional publishing house.
A self-published book can provide an author with a greater opportunity for exposure with wider distribution. An author will also have the opportunity to maintain control over a book’s formatting, editing, and cover art.
