I have been doing a little research regarding the reasons authors move towards the Self-Publishing route. I know that for some,it is beneficial because they don't want to lose control, want more royalties, don't want to wait more than 12 months etc. There are plenty of reasons, all that I find valid and to be honest were some of the same reason I started out as a self publisher. However; if you were to consider publishing with a traditional publisher, what is it that you would want or need? As a publisher, I am starting to receive manuscripts from authors that either tried the self-publishing way and it didn't work for them or they are still not sure as it can be a little scary.
So, I am trying to see what could be done to address their needs (being proactive) before I even consider the option.
Thanks in advance for your feedback!
