Its short history is this: I worked on it for several years, acquired a high-powered agent, had some brushes with major publishers, then, crickets.
I could have tried to go for a small publisher, but I was told mine was "a bigger book" with more commercial aspirations and prestigious small publishers were interested in more literary tomes.
Against the advice of my agent, I began perusing the big self-publishing companies' Web sites and evaluating what they had to offer.
After much deliberation, I chose BookSurge, a print-on-demand (POD) outfit that Amazon owned along with the more no-frills POD operation CreateSpace. Royalties are better than what "real" publishers offer, but there are caveats, and true self-publishing pros prefer to cut out the subsidy press (which takes a cut) and go straight to a POD printer like Lightning Source to maximize profits. Well, thanks to a little publicity courtesy of Apple and a rejected-- then accepted-- free iPhone app, four and half months after I self-published "Knife Music," my agent sold it to The Overlook Press, an independent publisher that put the book out in hardcover in July 2010.
As I said, that's the short story, and many things have changed -- particularly for the e-book industry -- since I first wrote this column back in December 2008.
You choose a size for your book, format your Word manuscript to fit that size, turn your Word doc into a PDF, create some cover art in Photoshop, turn that into a PDF, and upload it all to the self-publisher of your choice and get a book proof back within a couple of weeks (or sooner) if you succeeded in formatting everything correctly. After you officially publish your book, you can make changes to your cover and interior text by submitting new PDFs, though your book will go offline ("out of stock") for a week or two. Both CreateSpace and Lulu offer good instructions for the DIY crowd and it's not that difficult to come up with an OK-looking book (people's definition of OK will vary).
The first thing I tell authors who tell me they want to publish a print book is that print should be their secondary focus. Once you have your book finalized in a Word or PDF file, it's relatively easy to convert it into one of the many e-book formats -- or just offer it as a download as a PDF. Note: Please see my article "How to self-publish an e-book" for more information on e-book creation. I can't speak for all self-publishing companies, but the quality of POD books is generally quite decent.
One of the unfortunate drawbacks of having a low barrier of entry into a suddenly hot market is that now everybody and their brother and sister is an author. Again, because the barrier to entry is so low, the majority of self-published books are pretty bad.
The average print self-published book sells about 100-150 copies -- or two-thirds to three-quarters of your friends and family combined (and don't count on all your Facebook acquaintances buying). Barrier to entry may be low, but creating a book that looks professional and is indistinguishable from a book published by a "real" publishing house is very difficult and requires a minimum investment of a few thousand dollars (when all was said and done, I'd put in around $7,500, which included about $2,500 in marketing costs).
Note: If it's any consolation, the majority of fiction books -- even ones from "real" publishers -- struggle in the marketplace. If you have market aspirations for your book, buy your own ISBN (International Standard Book Number) and create your own publishing company. Even if you go with one of the subsidy presses for convenience's sake, there's no reason to have Lulu, CreateSpace, iUniverse, Xlibris, Author House, Outskirts, or whomever listed as your publisher. Note: Most self-publishing operations will provide you with a free ISBN for both your print book and e-book but whatever operation provides you with the ISBN will be listed as the publisher.
Note: On a more cynical note, some authors are creating titles that are very similar to popular bestsellers. You've written your book and God knows you'd like to just hand it off to someone, have a team of professionals whip it into shape, and get it out there. Personally, I'd never work with CreateSpace's in-house editors, copy editors, and in-house design people. Down the road, I suspect you'll see more self-publishers offer high-end programs that pair you with a former editor from a major publishing house.
OK, so I've just told to avoid "packages" from publishers and yet I'm now saying you need editing and copy editing. While I didn't use his copy editor (I used a friend of a friend who currently works at a big publishing house), he and other editors in his group can suggest people. CreateSpace and other self-publishing companies are always offering special deals on their various services. Though the quote sounds great but once you have written something don’t you feel desperate to share your ‘masterpiece’? Il termine self-publishing e ormai entrato nelle nostre giornate, ma sappiamo cos’e e come funziona?
Puo essere utile, dunque, fornire alcuni chiarimenti, cominciando dall’inizio: cos’e il self-publishing?
Con questo termine, reso in italiano con autopubblicazione, indichiamo quelle situazioni in cui un autore decide di pubblicare il proprio libro da se, senza ricorrere a un editore. Se, dunque, la scelta di aspirare a una casa editrice sembrerebbe preferibile, la pensa in maniera diversa l’esercito degli autori autopubblicati.
In Italia la situazione e meno rosea, anche se alcuni dati fanno emergere elementi di interesse. Nella sostanza, l’autore mantiene il controllo totale della propria opera, con tutto cio che questo fatto comporta; basta scegliere uno dei tanti servizi di self-publishing disponibili, caricare la propria opera personalizzando una serie di parametri, tra cui metodo di pubblicazione (ebook o cartaceo con print on demand), formato di stampa, copertina, rilegatura, prezzo, e il gioco e fatto. Come si puo intuire, questo e un quadro generale, e non tiene conto delle differenze, a volte anche importanti, tra servizi diversi. La raccomandazione e, dunque, quella di non farsi prendere dalla foga e cercare di scegliere il servizio di self-publishing piu adatto alla propria opera.
In quanto ad iniziative a cavallo fra editoria classica e innovazione, possiamo annoverare il concorso letterario BigJump, nato dalla collaborazione fra Rizzoli, Amazon e 20lines, da cui sono emersi nomi come quelli di Veronica Gussoni e Stefania Balotelli, o il servizio Libromania, creato da DeAgostini Libri e Newton Compton e che mira a pubblicare in ebook nuovi talenti con la collaborazione di uno staff editoriale in piena regola. Chissa, quindi, che dopo aver capito cos’e e come funziona, la vostra occasione non possa essere proprio il self-publishing. In realta, self-publishing significa che l'Autore si prende carico proprio di tutte quelle funzioni tradizionalmente a carico della casa editrice. Oggi, servizi freelance, proofreaders, editors (nel senso inglese del termine) e grafici per le copertine consentono di avvalersi di servizi di qualita senza dover ricorrere alla casa editrice. Scrivere e pigiare sul tasto "Publish", vuoi di Amazon con KDP o Smashwords, Narcissus, Lulu, e quanti altri significa solo accrescere il numero dello slush pile pubblicato e garantire che gli oppositori dell'Author-Publishing abbiano ragione a dire che e tutta immondizia. Massimo, grazie del commento: cio che dice offre uno spunto di discussione davvero interessante. Invero, dalle reazioni dei lettori, e facile arguire che la maggior parte del self-publishing e un scrivi-e-pubblica senza molti sforzi.
Direi, invece, che la contro-filiera sia stata invece un'ondata causato dalla foga e dallo slancio. One of the first and most important decisions you’ll make is: will you take a DIY (do-it-yourself) approach or build a team to help you?
To some people, especially those already familiar with the publishing industry, this is a no-brainer. It should be mentioned here that authors with higher selling books are more likely to take a team approach to self-publishing. Here are three questions to help you figure out which services to DIY and which you should get help with. Each task regarding publishing your book will take hours, even once you are experienced with it. The biggest consideration for many new authors when self-publishing is money, balancing what you spend with what you might make in sales. Ideally you would start your self-publishing plan even before you start writing your novel. I know everyone tells you to be careful about who you hire, but be careful about who you hire. It’s not at all hard to learn enough graphic arts skills to do your own cover design. You must have JavaScript enabled in your browser to utilize the functionality of this website.
Now, more than at any other time in history, there are more opportunities and possibilities to write, share, and publish a story — and interact with an audience.
We're going to guide you through the book publishing process and give you the resources to choose which publishing option fits your work best. Traditional book publishing is when a publisher offers the author a contract and, in turn, prints, publishes, and sells your book through booksellers and other retailers. There are a variety of different publishing models, including print-on-demand, vanity, subsidy, and self-publishing.
A vanity publisher, also known as a book manufacturer, publishes any anyone's work provided they have the money to pay for their services.
A subsidy publisher is similar to a vanity publisher in that the author has to pay for the printing and binding process of the book. Self-publishing requires the author to invest their own money to produce, market, distribute, and warehouse the book. In traditional publishing, the publisher handles the marketing, distribution, and warehousing for your book. Whereas in self-publishing, depending on which type of publisher or platform you choose, the majority of the work falls on your shoulders and you pay for all expenses. In both cases, you have the option to choose what format your book will be published in—printed book, e-book, audio book, cd, dvd, and many more.
If seeing your work in print is to fulfill a personal goal you have or you view yourself as a hobbyist, choose vanity publishing. If you're writing a family history, memoir or book of poetry that has a limited audience, and don't want your book stocked at bookstores, using POD is probably to your advantage. Self-publishing is also a good option if you have a time-sensitive manuscript, as a commercial publishing company can take up to 18 months to get your book from manuscript to final production. Being a Brisbane based family owned business we can offer you a personal self publishing service. Book self publishing is a hands on experience and we wish you to be involved with as many aspects as possible.
Book self publishing is not only about the artwork, there are numerous ways of binding your self published book, different stocks of paper for both the text and the cover of your self publish book, as well as different protective coatings and finishes for the cover of your publication.


When it comes to self publishing we understand both money and time are serious constraints that is why Clark & Mackay self publishing have flexible options for your book and cover artrwork. You can supply all the artwork your self, from a word processing programme or desktop publishing software. The second option is that you produce the artwork for the text of your self published book but you allow our graphic design team to create an appealing cover design.
The third option is to allow Clark & Mackay self publishing to layout and design and produce the artwork for both the text and the cover.
We also can advise and assist with the ISBN number and barcode for your self published book. Whether your self publish book is a fiction or non-fiction novel, autobiography, children's story, family history or a poetry anthology we would love to help you self publish. Even if the self publishing is a small quantity for friends or family we are happy to produce your self published book, we often print short run family histories for people wishing to document their family's achievements for future generations.Clark & Mackay's inhouse printing also caters for large quantity self publishing print runs for distribution and sales.
For those authors just starting in self publishing and wishing to do their own artwork, we supply a number of Microsoft word templates for creating your self published book. We are happy to advise on the best solution and a competitive price on your self publishing requirements. Clark & Mackay provides economical printing of your flyer or advertising and promotional brochures and material. Getting ready to publish the first MollyMoo ebook very shortly I have been exploring all options for self publishing for the past few weeks and months. I love the concept of self-publishing, being in control of the look and feel of your book, creating memorable shelf-ready photo book gifts for grandparents, family and friends, or creating a hardbound book of your children’s stories and illustrations – how cool would that be!
Blurb recently sent me a copy of An Expected Blossom to have a look at, a hardbound self-published book by Victor Khramov, an industrial designer with an interest in storytelling.
OR if you’re wracking your brain to think of something novel to give to friends this year consider giving them a voucher for creating photo-books of their own favourite family photos, just like the ones I am creating for Molly xx she will thank me in years to come!
This post was kindly sponsored by Blurb, but all opinions about their service and An Expected Blossom, the choice to support them, and the project itself are my own.

I also learned that many small publishers were being wiped out by the "self-publishing revolution," a movement that's not so unlike the "citizen journalism" or bloggers' revolt of recent years that's had a major impact on mainstream media, including this publication. But I was less concerned about making money from this venture and more interested in putting together a well-packaged product that I wouldn't be embarrassed to sell and some strangers might be willing to buy. But most of what I learned along the way and what I picked up from other people who've also self-published, applies more than ever. I'm advising people who have text-based books (no graphics, illustrations, or photos) to test the self-publishing waters with an e-book before moving on to hard copies.
There are several e-publishers geared to "indie" authors, including Smashwords, BookBaby and Lulu, to name just a few. That means you're dealing with a ton of competition, some of which is made up of hustlers, charlatans, and a bunch of people in between. You wonder why "real" books take nine months to produce -- and usually significantly longer. For instance, if your objective is to create a book for posterity's sake (so your friends and family can read it for all eternity), you won't have to invest a lot of time or money to produce something that's quite acceptable.
But even if it's a masterpiece, there's a good chance it won't fly off the shelves (and by shelves, I mean virtual shelves, because most self-published books don't make it into brick-and-mortar stores). Nonfiction books with a well-defined topic and a nice hook to them can do well, especially if they have a target audience that you can focus on. For around $100 (what a single ISBN costs) and a little added paperwork, you can go toe-to-toe with any small publisher. Also, some authors use pseudonyms that are similar to famous authors' names so they'll show up in search results for that author. Well, there are a lot of companies that will offer to make just that happen -- and do it in a fraction of the time a traditional publisher could. But I've also heard a lot nightmare stories where people come away disappointed with the process and feel ripped off.
And since they're probably not going to sell a lot of your books, they make money by with nice margins. It's also worth mentioning that Amazon has become a publisher itself, with several imprints that it's either bought or created. To be clear, this isn't going to be a better deal than what you'd get from a package deal with a self-publisher, but these people are experienced and are going to be upfront and honest with you. There are plenty of good book consultants out there, including Alan Rinzler, who has an excellent blog and straddles the line between being an executive editor at an imprint of John Wiley & Sons and providing services to private clients. There isn't whole lot of leeway, but it doesn't hurt to ask for deal sweeteners -- like more free copies of your book (they often throw in free copies of your book). Now if you have already penned down your thoughts and wondering what are the ways of getting published, then let me assure you self publishing a book is the best way.
Molto spesso, infatti, le semplificazioni giornalistiche e i sensazionalismi commerciali portano a definizioni inesatte e generano confusione. Secondo un report della societa Bowker, considerando solo gli Stati Uniti, i dati di crescita del fenomeno sono davvero impressionanti. Ogni piattaforma ha un suo target preciso, offre possibilita differenti in ogni fase dell’autopubblicazione e puo risultare piu o meno adeguata a seconda degli scopi del self-publisher.
In questo senso, vi e da dire che la cara “vecchia” editoria tradizionale non sta certo a guardare.
Purtroppo, questo e proprio lo scenario che hanno in mente i detrattori del self-publishing e delle Vanity Press.
Nel passato, non esisteva altra possibilita che le case editrici per accedere alla "lunga serie di funzioni, dalla selezione all’editing, dalla correzione di bozze all’impaginazione, fino a stampa e promozione" — come scritto nell'articolo —.
Un self-publisher serio e casa editrice di se stesso e deve assumersene i carichi, gli oneri, e le responsabilita. E vero, infatti, che l'abbondanza di servizi e la facilita di accesso agli (e di gestione degli) stessi puo indurre a pensare che "pubblicare un libro" sia questione di un paio di clic.
E il nuovo trend di chi si autopubblica ma in maniera seria, guardando al libro pubblicato come un veicolo di informazione e testimonianza della serieta del proprio lavoro di scrittore. Forse e invece la sola e unica filiera, ora anche integrata dagli autori ibridi (Hybrid-publishing), ovvero di quegli autori che riacquistano i diritti di pubblicazione di opere gia lanciate dalle case editrici e decidono di curarne personalmente le nuove edizioni.
Scrievere, curare le varie edizioni, lavorare sui riscontri dai beta-reader, scervellarsi sulle singole frasi per farle suonare nel modo 'giusto', lavorare con gli editori per mettere a punto un romanzo di 300 pagine e un lavoro duro e spesso si va in pari solo dopo qualche mese di vendita.
Se il codice inserito e corretto e il tuo commento viene segnalato lo stesso come spam non ti preoccupare, non riscriverlo; la redazione lo pubblichera al piu presto. But many authors thinking about self-publishing don’t consider the implications of this question. That doesn’t necessarily mean that’s why they make more money, but it’s an interesting fact worth exploring. But if you are, you may be able to design your own cover art, promotional materials, or website. Most authors have other fulltime jobs, families, and tons of other responsibilities and can’t just spend 24-7 in their writing cave churning out books. I live in an itty-bitty town a few miles from Charlotte, NC with my husband, our two kids, and what often feels like a million pets. One is that you actually don’t have to handle distribution when self-publishing unless you want to try to get your book into bookstores.
At the very least, you MUST have beta readers to see the problems in your story that you’re too close to it to see yourself.
If your language skills are truly awe-inspiring, and you don’t mind a very large amount of dreary work, you can also do your own copy-editing and proofreading. I totally agree about the content editing, in that no one should attempt to perform their own content edit. It's a common scenario — you have an idea for a book but you have no way of knowing how to translate that idea from your computer screen into print or online. Whether you are after the traditional publishing experience, complete with an agent, editor, and publisher, or want to self publish your book, it's completely within your grasp. The publisher essentially buys the right to publish your book and pays you royalties from the sales.
POD publishing uses printing technology to produce books one at a time through a company at a cost-effective price. Typically editing, proofreading, or marketing is offered at an additional cost and you make money off of royalties from sales. The manufacturer prints and binds a book on the author's dime and does not offer editing, marketing, or promotional assistance. However, this type of publisher contributes a portion of the cost to editing, distribution, warehousing, and marketing.
While this can be a huge time commitment, the process can be more cost-effective than vanity or subsidy publishing. This is the traditional method to book publishing because there is no expense to the author—mainstream publishers make a profit from the book's sales. The main advantages of self-publishing are that you control when the book is published, you retain all rights to your book, and you receive 100 percent of the profits. If you pick an e-book, which is essentially a book published in digital form and available on e-Readers and other electronic devices, it can be downloaded instantly, has the ability to be translated into different languages, and can never go out of print. They are often nonreturnable, not sold at a discount, and you won't have to store any unsold books. If you don't know how to find or reach your readers, don't have an online presence, don't have the time to spend online or dislike social media, want to be in a brick-and-mortar type of bookstore and have a publisher handle the marketing for you, the traditional publishing route may be the best option.

I love that through Blurb the author has been able to self-publish this beautiful, professional bookstore-quality book, and we have been able to read and enjoy a book that might not otherwise be so readily available. It would make for a sweetheart of a Christmas Gift for young readers, or for parents to read to their little ones.
So, apologies to gadget-heads as I take a brief sojourn into the land of self-publishing, which has become a lot more high-tech than a lot of people realize.
If I did it right, I thought, and managed to get it some attention, some "real" publisher might come along and discover what a gem those 20 some odd publishers had passed on.
As always, feel free to add your own experiences to the comments section, and thanks to all the readers who've e-mailed in the past. It's much easier to produce an e-book, particularly when it comes to formatting and cover design. And needless to say, Amazon's CreateSpace steers you toward uploading your book to the Kindle Store via Kindle Direct Publishing. While that growth has started to level off as fewer writers have unpublished novels in their closets to publish, you can still expect to go up against thousands of other motivated indie authors. Unfortunately, many authors make the mistake of using a title that has too many other products associated it with it -- and it gets buried in search results.
You can do a search in Google for the companies you're considering and find testimonials -- good and bad -- from authors who've used the services. Amazon is in the process of developing a new hybrid model for publishing that aims to take the place of traditional publishers, which it sometimes refers to as "legacy" publishers. They're not just pushing your book out to move it along the line on the conveyor belt, though they are trying to make a living. In verita, non bisogna dimenticare che, nel processo editoriale “tradizionale”, la casa editrice svolge, o dovrebbe svolgere, una lunga serie di funzioni, dalla selezione all’editing, dalla correzione di bozze all’impaginazione, fino a stampa e promozione. Autori, piattaforme e lettori dell’editoria 2.0, presentato l’anno scorso, in occasione di Editech 2013, i titoli cartacei autopubblicati mostravano una crescita del 29% rispetto all’anno precedente, mentre quasi il 5% degli ebook in commercio in Italia proveniva dal self-publishing. Sono ormai numerosi i casi di self-publisher passati dall’ebook autopubblicato all’uscita cartacea con grandi editori, come Amanda Hocking e E.L. Author-publishing, che e il termine che preferisco, significa che l'autore, lavora sul testo, lo sottopone al suo team di beta-readers, lavora con un editor (correttore di bozze), produce con un grafico professionista una copertina che attragga il lettore (eh si, l'abito fa il monaco in editoria), e cura (o fa curare) il formato ebook e per la stampa.
A questo punto, pero, il fuoco si sposta sui comportamenti degli aspiranti self-publisher: quanti si fanno carico di sopperire, in qualche modo, alla mancanza di quegli elementi della "filiera" che citavo nell'articolo?
Sempre di meraviglia nello scoprire uno scrittore indipendente che risulta—alla lettura—come e meglio dello scrittore promosso dalla nota casa editrice di sempre.
Author-publishing, oppure come coniato da Guy Kawasaki, Artisanal Publishing, intendendo con cio elevare a sinonimo di qualita e cura come il risultato del lavoro degli artigiani-artisti, che creano pezzi unici e rari, contrapponendolo alla fabbricazione di mobili modello IKEA. Ritengo che la maggior parte di quanti pubblicano da soli in modo 'facile, mediocre, e con poca cura' alla fine perderanno la voglio nel vedere che i lettori non arrivano, e se arrivano sparano a zero su quanto letto. For example, according to the study cited in the link above, most of those authors still do their own marketing and promotion.
But as soon as you can, plan time into your schedule to start developing your self-publishing strategy. Research what you should know and ask about, then ask for recommendations from people you trust.
I blog about the writing process, resources for writers, and other aspects of the writer's life. You can easily learn to do your own formatting unless you’re totally computer crippled. As for the distribution, I’ve met many authors who are distributing their books themselves via their websites, Google docs, etc.
Whether it's copy edits or ongoing coaching, I build a partnership with each writer to identify and overcome individual stumbling blocks in their writing and in their writing practice. If you are or want to be a non-fiction writer, you will need to submit a book proposal with three sample chapters, and a synopsis of each chapter. In terms of rights, some can go to the POD publisher for a set amount of time but this varies depending on the publisher.
In this case, the publisher owns the books until they are sold and the author makes money from royalties. However, the as e-book formats and file types develop and change over time, many may need to be converted to a new file or format.
Give us a call, make an appointment and speak with the owner and manager face to face.Our manager and his self publishing team are happy to talk about what you want to produce and get a realistic self publishing quote and plenty of self publishing advice. No matter where you are in Australia, no matter where you are in Queensland, or even if you live in Brisbane, we are happy to provide all the assistance for producing your self published book. Whether you live in Brisbane or else where in Australia, contact us for a quote and helpful advice on self publishing. No matter where you are in Australia, no matter where you are in Queensland, or even if you live in Brisbane, we are happy to provide all the assistance for producing your self publish book. It's hard to get everything just right (if you're a novice at book formatting, Microsoft Word will become your worst enemy). You'll be lucky to make your investment back, let alone have a "hit" that brings in some real income.
Ideally, you should be able to meet with an editor, copy editor, and graphic designer in person -- and they all should have experience in book publishing. E come si puo leggere la situazione, in quei casi in cui il self-publisher si fa carico di coinvolgere altre figure (beta-reader, correttore di bozze, editor, grafico), la creazione di una sorta di contro-filiera? Il fatto che i lettori se ne stupiscano quasi sempre ci dice che ancora il self-publishing e, in primis, un polo di attrazione per 'vedersi pubblicati' in maniera rapida e spicciola. Col tempo, il self-publishing—sta gia succedendo nel mercato nord americano e inglese—superera in vendite e apprezzamento l'editoria tradizionale. Make sure that whoever you work with has the same vision for your book as you do and that they are someone you feel confident and comfortable working with. Many writers see this a valid option for connecting with readers on a more individual level.
You should be sure to mention the synopsis of your book, the chapter summary, the market or audience your book is meant for, and a description of yourself. The best case scenario is for one of them to accept your proposal and offer you a contract. We can produce examples of various self published books and their different binding methods, show you different paper stock samples, and if you are supplying your own self published book artwork we can also check your files to make sure it will be suitable for publishing and producing your book and inform you of any issues we find.For those Australian self publishers who live outside the Brisbane region, please feel free to telephone our offices during business hours and speak to our consultants, or contact us by email. Victor’s illustrations are just so delicious, hand drawn with lovely shadows behind the main cat character that make you want to just lift him right off the page for a cuddle. Basically, you want to get the maximum SEO (search engine optimization) for your title, so if and when somebody's actually looking to buy it they'll find the link for your book -- not an older one with an identical title. With its flagship Encore imprint, it selects certain "exceptional" self-published titles from "emerging" authors and brings them under the Amazon umbrella so to speak. La crescita rispetto al 2012 e in doppia cifra, 16,56%, mentre rispetto al 2008 il self-publishing fa segnare un +436,53%. We have a file upload facility for artworks, we post your proofs to you, and the finished books can be delivered to any region in Australia.
And you take home a bigger royalty than you'd normally get from a traditional publisher--if you sell any books.
It was pricey ($1,000 a month) but in a special sale I bought 3 months for the price of 2 and ended up being paired one month with John Grisham's new novel, which put the thumbnail image of my book in front of a lot of people. However, after I'd made the changes he suggested, he made some calls to agents he knew and some were willing to take a look. In questo quadro, gli ebook hanno conosciuto una crescita relativa strepitosa: sebbene dal 2012 al 2013 le pubblicazioni siano diminuite dell’1,61%, il differenziale rispetto al 2008, in percentuale, e del 1770,71%. Sembra che ci si stia dirigendo a grandi passi verso il quadro dipinto da Mark Coker, fondatore di Smashwords, secondo cui gli ebook autopubblicati riusciranno a conquistare il 50% del mercato entro il 2020.
