Fredericksburg Independent Book Festival
When it comes to publishing a book, there’s much to consider. Do you self-publish online or do you submit your manuscript to a publisher? Both ways have their advantages. When you submit to a publisher, you can spend weeks or months waiting to hear back. If you go the self-publishing route, you simply upload your book online and voila, it’s ready for readers!
As you can see, these are two very different roads to take. Marketing is always key if you plan on making any money off of the endeavor. For some, it’s less about the money and more about getting the word out there. After all, our stories are important and they need to be told.
