A number of changes in the publishing industry over the past ten years have meant that, although more titles are being published, there are actually fewer opportunities for new authors to get a publishing contract.
Publishers’ margins on books having decreased considerably. There are now fewer major publishing houses in existence than there used to be. Those that do exist have focused more on publishing books which have a proven track record, or have a celebrity name attached to them, so that they can guarantee a certain number of sales.
This leaves new authors in a difficult position in relation to these ‘traditional publishers’ and, increasingly, self-publishing is becoming the best opportunity to get your books read. With self-publishing, you can become an agent of your own success!
Whichever path you choose (and there is no reason why you can’t start doing both and see how it goes) it is important to go in with your eyes wide-open. Publishing and selling books are very competitive fields, and all of the potential avenues have their own advantages and disadvantages. Spend a good amount of time weighing out the options, so that you can find a route which is best for you.
