Getting your book from an idea into print can be one of the most exciting processes of your life. Somewhere along your writing process you will begin to consider how you will get your book into print and begin to weigh your two main options, traditional publishing or self-publishing.
Find the Courage to Publish
There are hundreds of things in life that take courage. Skydiving, starting a business, marriage, rappelling down a mountain, ending a relationship, saying no – usually the scary things that may cause a big change in your life. However, when you go through something that takes a lot of courage do you look back and regret it? Perhaps sometimes, but usually the things that take the most courage also give the biggest reward.
Five Reasons to Go Digital
The rise of social media, smart phones, e-mails and blogging prove that the world is becoming more and more digital. While the traditional form of paper books holds strong with book-lovers who appreciate the nostalgia of tangible books, many readers are making the switch to electronic books, or e-books.
