Can anyone Publish on KindleIs it possible for everyone to publish on Kindle?
Do I need to contact a publishing house or just publish on Kindle?
Now, first of all, one should not hear anyone who thinks independent editing is a "last resort", because - obviously - they don't know what they're on about. If someone tells you that it is always better to be posted "via Publisher", you can certainly reject this one.
Let me ask you a question: why would you give up 56% of your bonuses and job controls to see your books on a bookcase in four years' time - and only for a few month on that shelve? There is more you can make on the way to becoming a publishing house than you can make on the way to becoming a job.
Here is a timescale of how long it will take for your work to be released to a publisher: It will take you at least a year to find a frahling who is willing to replace you, and that is if you have a convincing question, history and a packet you can present to them. Suppose you can even get a literature salesman, it will take a few years (or more) before that salesman is interested in your work - and you will only be put on your hips during that period (which means that you are the fall-back item if he does not parcel out the other books he has sold to the publishing house; you are the response "Do you have anything else you want to show us?
It will take another year or two for your publication if the publishing house is interested. As soon as your work is released, it will be part of a bundle offer (as it was when it was collected by a second-rate publisher); your work will only be tossed in the carton because the bookshop thought it might be selling another work in the bundle - not yours.
I' m sure your ledger will end up on the bookshelf and be laid to rest. When the bookshop wants to buy, the books are placed on a desk where they are sold. Before the bookshop packs them up again and returns them to the publishing house for a full reimbursement, your books are languishing - unbought - for at least four inches.
It could be enough to buy enough books to pay the $2 or $3 thousand in bonuses you received in up-front. You' ve waited four years and four month for your story to be out. You will receive 14 for every volume you buy. Five percent of emoluments that do not pay the advances the publisher has generously given you.
Best of all, the publishers retain publication privileges for an extra number of years, i.e. you cannot have your copyrights sold to third parties or your books republished elsewhere. Welcome to the marvellous realm of legal publication. If you had done independent publication instead - and if you had begun today - your work would be available from any large eRetailer available to any library, bookstore or university.
and your work would be available forever as a corpse. Let's put this whole royalties thing in the right light by using the $3,000 royalties prepayment that a publishers would have given you: You have to buy 4,167 copies for $5 to earn $3,000. Independent publishing: You have to buy 857 works for $5 to earn $3,000.
It is much simpler to find 857 persons to buy a work than to persuade 4,167 persons to buy a work - especially if one only has 4 month (and no advertising) to sale these 4,167 work. Had you been selling 4,167 copies (which is not difficult to do as an independent; MUCH indie-published copies are selling several hundred copies a days - some are selling thousands), you would have earned $14,549.50.
You' re out $11,549.50 with a dinosaurs game. It took you four years to loose that kind of cash - that you could have made in a whole weeks (or less) of independent publish. You still want to go with an old publishers of dinosaurs after you first release India (I don't know what you have against making money.....), you probably won't have a problem; this moribund race is always looking for a win; if you release your album as an independent - and it is selling - you'll get these fellas to take the 56% of you!
Well, to scatter some really uninformed assumptions about the publishers' industry: There is NO "support in the processing of your book" from a publisher. They are NOT "validated" by a publisher. It is not some mystic, magic unicornfurz of an fictional host.
There' s money in the banks because you stick your nose in them. Independently released works are as good as - if not better than - hereditary works; they are more professionally produced, they are usually produced by the same publishers who use the dye saurians, their cover art is better, and there is a vast fellowship of writers looking for works that do not publish the bequests.
When your work is a fictitious work, you have the same - if not better - opportunity to resell your work as an independent publishing house. Cause old publishing houses don't pay a cent to advertise a nameless writer. All publicity YOU make for YOUR books will be on YOUR TIME; the publishing house will not refund - or take charge of - you trying to resell your work.
Independent literature almost always has better publicity and promotion than old music. Cause they' re sellin' a good thing, not a pack of booklets from a lot of nobody. Practically every single unpublished textbook is updated - and often better than an inherited one. Kindle Direct Publishing, Smashwords Direct and Createspace are the Holy Trinity of self-publishing; you publish your own personal notebook through KDP and SD, and you publish your own personal notebook through Createspace.
Anyone who thinks an asset refuses an asset because it has a "self-published" work is deceiving themselves; the asset refuses you if they don't believe they can make with you. A few folks just don't seem to see it and invent a fictional why an operative turned them down so they can get some rest at nights.
Don't stop saying no or telling you what you're talkin' about. They CAN be publicized, you CAN DEAL a book, and you CAN be a publicized writer who makes good moneys. Please do not hesitate to ask me if you have any further question; I will help you to publish your writers every workday!
