Self Publishing – The Emerging Trend

Most of us are, at some point or the other, bubbling with unique ideas, but hardly few of us find an appropriate outlet. Most people who love writing experiment with fresh ideas and have good manuscripts ready but the reputed publishing firms rarely pay them serious attention.

Most writers thus get discouraged and drop the idea of publishing their books mid way and stop dreaming about launching a book of their own; they stop dreaming about the idea of sharing their knowledge with others too. But these days, there is a very good outlet for all the budding writers and authors who wish to write a book. It is called ‘self- publishing’. As the name suggests, it is all about the author getting his book published on his own. To some the idea seems a little weird but its not, rather many bestsellers like the ‘Celestine Prophecy’ by James Redcliff and ‘The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari’ by Robin Sharma were self published! ‘The immortals of Meluha’ was also previously self published. It’s not necessary that if a major publishing house rejects a book, the book is crap and is not worth publishing. These days creative freedom is all what the budding and educated authors ask for. Unnecessary tampering and modification with the manuscript and changing the tenor of the story just in expectation of increasing the sales is absolutely unbearable. Thus, self publishing firms are a good answer to this. Here the author is given the complete freedom and attention. No tampering is done with the manuscript and the original ideas remain the same as the author wishes to convey and the book is printed and put up for marketing.

The copyright of the book rests with the author himself. Moreover, in cases where the book is targeted towards a niche audience like books on topics like gardening of tropical flowers or essays about nuclear mechanics etc that are much narrowly targeted can be easily launched, that too at affordable prices. There are various such companies that can help authors like Humming Words Publishers.
