Self Publishing Vs Traditional Publishing

Publishing Compare

Many young writers like us who want to date result in the publishing world are confronted with the dilemma of self-publishing,where each author must assume all responsibility in the various stages of the publication of their works without any intermediary that supports them, or the long process of traditional houses with lots of negative feedback, especially with the emerging authors.
We analyze in detail the differences:

self publishing

  • Traditional Publishing:
The first obstacle to overcome is "to be chosen". Being selected as an editor is always difficult to consider the contents of "non-standard " or even if the work is original approach to somewhere else and then is discarded. Most books are discarded for this reason, but this does not mean that a book cannot be successful.
Traditional publishing is necessary to consider the costs. The costs are all borne by the publisher because he has to deal with the creation, publication and distribution of the book. The gains are all the rage in the hands of the publisher and a percentage in the pockets of the author.
But even if our work was taken from a major publisher, so often you do not get the amount of users expected because maybe the publisher tends to push more as a book by a famous author, a best seller, or a book of the trilogy, thus leaving behind the emerging writer.
You could turn to traditional medium or small publishing houses in order to achieve some goal in most, maybe even mean these publishers may indicate what is the way for the success hoped for and achieve greater personal satisfaction, but not a large number of distributions.

  • Self-publishing:
For many young emerging this is the way of the future. Although for many others there are conflicting opinions as according to them it is a market that tends to disappear because it is without innovations.
The benefits of being the publisher of himself is that everyone handles your work, you can hire someone to create their own covers, which proofread, etc. that makes the layout and all at very low cost. You can determine the selling price of your text coming in gains ranging from 50% up to 85%. You can even establish sales networks of the book. It must be said that the prices of ebooks are very low compared to publishing standards. So the value of the book lies not in the selling price, but in the number of copies that you can sell.
Today we can say that we are witnessing a real war between traditionalism and innovation in this area even though now as we can see anywhere on the web talking about ebooks and technology in this respect. The only hope that we can cling and that this leads to a compromise between the parties and then create something that can reassure emerging writers and not on the quality factor of its work.

 Which publishing house to choose.

The question that all young emerging writers refer not just have a manuscript ready. It ' obvious that it is not easy to choose a publishing house so out of the blue, but it is equally true that paying a bit of forethought to things you can find the right one for us. You can not submit a yellow to a publisher that publishes poems or poems submitted to a publishing house says that a priori that the poems are not market.
Move to a big publishing house which today are inundated with piles of manuscripts of famous people and try to present our book is incurred only to never be taken into account.

But any of you have ever thought about editing, pagination, to cover well taken care of?
Has anyone else ever thought what to note when the player buys a book?

Would you buy a book inside has spelling errors, or while reading the reading is not sliding or jumping from one topic to another making you crazy and never want to read it. So having said that well groomed appearance editing if you want to self-publish your work or if you have to choose a publishing company to do it for you carefully choose the latter because it goes well for your work.
Many new Author buy some books of a particular publishing house to read them and see how they look like or if the same house releases of free texts on the web ( and to date there ' are plenty of them ) take them, read them and take a ' idea of how to book your meal before giving your book to a publisher.

Distribution of a book.

This is another question that all new Author arise. Again, this is just as complex depending on what and how you want to distribute. Let's start by saying that the distribution in the first place is direct or indirect.
Direct Mode is when between the publisher and the library distribution is direct ( eg the large chains such as Mondadori, RCS Rizzoli etc. ), indirect vice versa is between the two parties when there is a third figure which deals the only distribution ( publishers of small and medium caliber ). The distribution, in turn, after splits into national and local levels, the first means that our work will be distributed throughout Italy, while the second is distributed only in some regions.
Obviously, these distributions have a cost ranging from 50% to 65% of the cover price of the book and rightly so, this means that the gain of the author of the book tends to fall.

To whom is the book

In our opinion asking around about, talking to people about what to write a book, do not need to accept suggestions. If you do not have ideas, if you do not know what to write then it is not yet time to write the book, take the time that you need to think about it and you'll see that the arguments will be alone. The writing of a book is it fantasy, a book of poetry or a scientific book as we have in our website is something that comes from within yourself, that you sit in front of a pc or take a notebook and write by hand, so it does not matter the way because you already know what to talk and how to talk about it.
The only thing that can be of help with your book and figure out what niche of users you want to achieve, because not everyone will buy your book but you have to target a niche of users who appreciate what you write. If you write a science book it is a book of computer science, medicine or another, the book certainly will not buy a person interested in hunting or fishing, but it will be bought by people interested in science in that specific sector.

The question that arises is:

How many of these people in this sector can be involved to buy the book?
On the 100% of the persons concerned in that sector can draw in those?

Most of the time 100% is reached almost never (not that it is impossible) but to be able to reach 70% or 80% of these people means you have worked hard and have succeeded in their intent. There are no rules for writing a good book, there is what you want to do you read the reader that in the future will buy your book, you have to try to let him know what you think and why you think this, as if you were talking directly to him.
Write a book as if you were to need to read it, identified themselves by the side of the player who is reading your book, trying to figure out what he would like at that time and by what he seeks.

If you succeed you will have good prospects for the future.
