Benefits of Self Publishing over Traditional Publishing

Factor

Self-Publishing

Traditional Publishing

Waiting Period Self publishing model helps authors get their books published in a very short span of few days to weeks Traditional publishers take upto 6-12 months to bring a book into the market, IF they select the work for publishing.
Possibility of Getting Published In self-publishing, there is no rejection. Depends on evaluation of the manuscript.
Availability Online across all major book selling platforms globally. Availability limited to specific markets/bookstores
Copyright Copyright remains with the Author Traditional publishers usually keep the copyright of the book
In-Print The book never goes out of print by the self publishing, print-on-demand model. Traditional publishers print the books for maximum 2-4 years seeing the sales and then do away with the book.
Royalty Payment Self publishing offers transparency with respect to sales and royalties for the book. Author can monitor the sales and royalties online. Royalties are provided to the author directly without any middlemen. Traditional publishers usually pay some royalty amount upfront and later if they feel so. Rarely there is any clarity or transparency in the total number of books sold.
Royalty Rates Royalty rates in self publishing is higher than traditional publishing as there are no middlemen involved. Royalty rates are less than self publishing
Print Quality Print quality of books is better in print-on-demand (POD) self publishing model which uses digital printing technologies and also better quality paper Traditional publishing model uses offset printing. Quality of books is usually not as good as books printed with POD technologies.
Author's Investment Author only pays for the services opted. There is no upfront requirement to purchase a specific number of books. Most traditional publishers ask the authors to purchase a few hundered copies to recover some (or even all) of the printing costs.

An average reader or a writer may stick to a couple of genres or authors. There is a chance that soon, his/her style starts following the same pattern, and remain no longer unique.  So, to excel, to have an edge in your writing, it’s good to explore. Be an adventurer!

As easy as it may seem, being a professional at writing and inculcating a constant drive to keep writing takes away much of this ‘ease’ factor. Writers do go through their own struggles and problems, but let’s keep that for some other time. And, some nice tips and tricks through this tête-à-tête might, anyway, assist you to maintain that drive and help you reach new heights without falling into some of those quarries. When I tell someone, ‘I’m a writer’ invariably I get a response, ‘Oh, wow! So working from home now? It must be great - working when you want, as much as you want!’ etc. What a laid-back picture of a writer’s life, I wonder. Being a writer, am sure you can relate, the truth is far away from any of the above (at least for me it is). And first and foremost, to keep going
