Self Publishing Is Easy, But Writers Still Keep Making Excuses

“Books And Computer” by jscreationzs FreeDigitalPhotos.net
The thing that never ceases to amaze me about being a writer, is how easy it is now to publish every book I write.

Not too many years ago, if you wanted to be an author, you had to spend years sending out your manuscripts to publishing companies hoping that one of them would like your work and offer to publish it.

Not only that, but royalties were low (sometimes only 5%) and you had to wait 1 or 2 years before your book was published, and even then there was no guarantee of making huge sales.

And if that wasn’t enough, most publishing companies would pull your book if it didnt’ sell at least 40,000 copies a year.

And in the meantime, you had to supplement your income, and try to get exposure in the media as a serious writer by constantly having articles published in magazines and other main stream media.

So it wasn’t easy, there was a lot of competition, and most writers’ books were never published.

But now it’s so easy to self publish.

You can write as many books as you want and published them as print books or ebooks (or both) for free AND your book is made available worldwide in just one day - or less.

And you can go on selling your books for years no matter how many sales you make.

It’s so easy compared to how it used to be and yet writers are still making excuses for not writing and publsihing their own books.

But if you start today you can publish a dozen books, or more, every year.

If you sit down and write every day, even if it’s just for an hour (or a lunch break), you can still write a book in a month.

Or what if you wrote and published just 2 books a year? It’s still 2 more books than you’re publishing now.

And when the process is repeated, not only will you have a great daily writing habit and a writing and publishing system set up, but you’ll also have dozens of books being sold all over the world.

There are many authors who just sit and write books all the time and now have 80 or more books in circulation.

Self publishing is also free to do and once set up, goes on working while you’re writing your next book.

I love self publishing because it’s not only revolutionised the way I work, but it’s enabled me to be able to earn all my income from my writing.

So today, right now, I’m sitting at home, writing, and earning money.

How about you?
