The importance of self-publishing

According to a research conducted in April 2021 – commissioned by Amazon to Ipsos to investigate the subject of reading and writing in Italy – the majority of people who wrote a book, failed to publish it. The process proved to be complex and expensive. Because of this, 46% of authors never submitted it to a publishing house, 40% did not have sufficient funds to publish it independently, while 18% were rejected by a publishing house. In this system, self-publishing turns out to be the right tool to facilitate authors, allowing great artistic freedom, as well as greater control over the selling price. In fact, among the most important qualities of self-published books, the following emerge: greater opportunities for emerging authors, lower cost, niche and specialized themes.
