ToyotaVoice: How Print-On-Demand Is Transforming Self-Publishing

ToyotaVoice: How Print-On-Demand Is Transforming Self-Publishing | Test | Scoop.it

Thanks to the advent of self-publishing, crowdfunding and e-commerce, indie artists of all kinds are launching their creative careers as solopreneurs...


...“When you make something easier to do, people do more of it,” wrote Thompson. “‘Print-on-demand’ publishing is about to do the same thing to books. It’ll keep them alive—by allowing them to be much weirder.


”By ‘weirder’ Thompson means more individualized and diverse. And he was correct. Bowker has reported increases in the numbers of book titles published overall for years, despite decreases in titles published by traditional publishers.

A very good tabular presentation of the options for authors from being traditionally published through to self-publishing it yourself. As Jane shows with the "Special + Hard-to-classify Cases" not every option can be easily compartmentalised.


One niggle I had was that traditional publishing equated to LOWER author royalty / revenue whereas d-i-y self-publishing equated to HIGHER. This is possibly true if you are considering it on a royalty / revenue per copy basis but may not be true where a traditional publisher can sell so many more copies.


Despite that, I think this a valuable resource for budding authors.
