If you have always wanted to write, but are not having success with traditional publishers, writing and publishing your work on the internet may be the answer for you. You can write articles, white papers, reports, eBooks, and more. You self-publish your writing online or have a company that specializes in this area publish a book for you.
Everything has changed in the past 10 years or so. It used to be that you had to submit articles to print publications in hope that they would be published several months later. Most of the time you would just receive a rejection notice telling you that they did not need your article at that time. Now you simply submit your articles to article directories and they will be published within days, as long as you meet the guidelines set out by the directory.
Book publishing has changed dramatically as well. In the olden days, and I am talking about the 1990’s, most people would find a literary agent and submit their manuscript to them in order for it to be presented to traditional publishing houses. In some cases it would be up to two years later before a book would finally be sold.
If you were a new writer, you not only did not receive an advance, but many times you ended up receiving boxes of books at your house. If they did not sell at the bookstores then you were required to take them back. Now everything is different. Instead of trying to publish a book the traditional way and only receive about two dollars for each one that is sold, you can sell it as an eBook and keep all of the money yourself. An eBook will even sell for at least twice what it would have sold for at a bookstore.
Remember that the reason to publish your own writing is to give you the time and money to live the life you choose.
