Are all published books profitable? Certainly not, but all books have the potential to be. So, what makes a book profitable? If you are writing for financial purposes, you should be able to not only break even but also have some profit in your pockets.
Writing is a creative process that expands the concrete representations embodied in our thoughts. In book publishing, we say, “everyone has a story inside them,” but writing it depends on your idea. Every other detail in your story is there to feed and cushion the idea so that it serves its purpose to the reader. While there are many starting points in the journey of writing, you only need to figure out what works best for you.
The author-publisher relationship is an ongoing connection created and established between the author and the publisher throughout the journey of publishing the author’s book. Its nature is mutual and should be beneficial to the interests of both parties and for the success of publishing a book. To land the book into the hands of the reader, the two cannot do so without each other. Despite the publishing route you take – independent publisher or traditional publisher, this relationship should be fruitful.
