Epublishing Discussions

Excellent panel discussion took place on 22 March, led by Leicester Writers Club. Amanda Grange - a romantic novelist who sells online as well as in print - summed up the advantages of self-publishing:

  • it's fast (can take over a year to publish through traditional system)

  • if you have the rights, you can publish your backlist

  • you can get a much high percentage of royalties (eg 70% via Amazon)

  • you can publish work which might sell in relatively small numbers (which wouldn't interest a mainstream publisher)

And the disadvantages:

  • the work won't be in libraries and bookshops

  • the work won't be reviewed in the big journals
