Before we answer that question, let’s first consider the difference between traditional publishing and self-publishing.

Traditional Publishing

Most people are familiar with traditional publishing. This refers to the standard system of getting a ‘book deal’. You submit your manuscript to a publishing company with the hope they accept it. If it is accepted (usually after many, many rejections), then you sign a contract which gives the publishing company full rights to your book. They will complete the work on getting it published as well as create marketing opportunities for you and you will receive royalty payments for the sale of the books.

Self-Publishing

On the other hand, you also have the option to self-publish your book. If you decide to go this way, then you actually become the publisher. This means you will not be rejected, and it allows you to retain full rights of the book. In addition, you receive a higher percentage of the royalties as well.

There are pros and cons to both methods.

With traditional publishing, there are no upfront costs and you don’t have to do the editing, design and marketing yourself. However, the struggle to get accepted is very real. Only a small percentage of submitted manuscripts are actually selected for publication which means that you will most likely face many rejections. In addition, once you sign the publishing contract you lose your creative control of the book. We have seen authors who had a vision for their book become very frustrated when the publishing company wanted to go in a different direction. The other things to consider with this type of publishing are that it takes a longer time to get the book to market AND the royalty rate percentages are less.

Self-publishing solves some of these problems. First, you will never have to go through rejection as a self-publisher. In addition, you retain full creative control of the book, and get a higher percentage of the royalties. Self-publishing also happens much more quickly than traditional publishing which means it takes less time to get your book into the hands of people who want to read your message.

The downsides of self-publishing are that you end up doing it all yourself, meaning you have to find editors, graphic designers and people to help you market it. That can be an overwhelming task.

However, that is exactly why Greg and I created Scriptor Publishing Group.
