Self-Publishing Valuable in Today’s Digital Culture
Self-publishing is an excellent career boost for many reasons. In the competitive world of book publishing, research shows that mainstream publishers only accept about 2 - 4% of all titles submitted to them. This leaves about 1.25 million authors who will either give up, or go on to self-publish. ZDocs effectively supports this population and their printing needs, giving a much-needed voice to independent authors. No longer seen as “vanity press”, self-publishing is a viable medium which allows writers to publish their non-fiction or fiction books with freedom of choice, and without the trials of dealing with established publishers.
