We’ve been offering consulting services for other writers for almost a decade now, so I’m getting used to writers bringing in their ideas for what their publishing career should look like. Many of the writers who approach us are intelligent individuals who have already committed to the career of writing, so they have done serious research on how to publish their books. However, I am always answering new questions about the best ways to publish a book in the current market place. It is always changing because consumers are constantly changing the ways that they choose to read their favorite books. People are always asking about the risks involved with publishing a book online.
There are risks involved with publishing a book online and in print. However, the risks our nothing compared to the rewards involved in publishing. Especially if you are putting out a book that you have put a lot of work into, the rewards of publishing a book greatly outweigh any of the risks. The rewards aren’t just financial gain either. People appreciate writers for spending time working on a particular subject. Even if a writer is specializing in writing fiction, he or she is putting a lot of effort behind finding the right way to express their ideas in dramatic form.
