The abundant advantages of supportive self-publishing are irresistible for many. These include but are not limited to:
The main drawbacks to supportive self-publishing are the responsibilities for marketing and distribution. Some authors get beyond these challenges by buying services from their publishing company which retain experts in copyediting, proofreading, publicity, etc., and by placing their books in local bricks-and-mortar stores in the Local Authors section or arranging for bookstore readings. Bottom line, supportive self-publishing is a reasonable choice once traditional publishers have been approached without success - especially for modest-selling genres like poetry, memoirs, and fringe or offbeat subject matter - or if the author only intends the work for a limited audience.
