As a publishing agency, we often come across authors who express both surprise and delight about how smooth and profitable publishing a book was.
We have met authors who have been pitching book proposals to numerous agents without success for years. Then they get on board with us and get their book published within 6 months max and also start to see ROI from day 1 itself.
We also come across frustrated authors who feel that traditional publishers are failing to meet their outcome brief on a daily basis.
So, we wanted to open their eyes to the realities of traditional publishing and share with them, why it is losing charm among the authorpreneurs.
Why Traditional Publishing is NOT all that it is hyped to be –
Entering traditional publishing is tantamount to playing a game that is rigged against you at all stages. Apart from the time and difficulty involved in just getting face to face with a publisher, authors often have to suffer creatively and commercially when they go down the traditional route.
