Bloomington, Ind. (PRWEB) March 18, 2009
Author Solutions (ASI), the world leader in indie book publishing - the fastest-growing segment of book publishing, has released a new video featuring interviews with authors who've achieved their publishing goals through indie book publishing.
"The authors interviewed in this video represent the successes and dreams of the tens of thousands of authors who are choosing to reject the rejection letters and finally publish their manuscripts. Each had a dream of publishing their book, and indie book publishing made those dreams reality," said Keith Ogorek, ASI vice president of marketing.
The interviews featured on the video illustrate how indie book publishing, also commonly referred to as self publishing, has become the popular alternative for authors from all walks of life. The common thread with each author is that they wanted to get a professionally published book out to the public quickly, while maintaining the integrity of their content.
"We have the freedom to try all kinds of experiments, and you couldn't do this with the mainstream houses for sure … We control and own our content, and it gives us leverage in case we want to do things," said Andy Tate, who along with his wife Bernice have published four children's books through ASI imprint AuthorHouse.
The Tates are just two of the more than 19,000 authors who chose to publish a book with ASI, through its leading self publishing imprints AuthorHouse, iUniverse, Xlibris, and Wordclay in 2008. Overall, ASI brands brought to market about one out of every 20 new U.S. book titles in 2008 - approximately six times the number published by leading consumer publisher Random House.
