So many people dream of publishing a book. However, writing the book isn’t even the most challenging part. Getting your book to a publisher is so tricky that even J. K. Rowling, Stephen King, and Dr. Seuss faced dozens of rejections. This proves that even great books by fantastic authors can get overlooked by literary agents and publishers alike.
Today it is possible to take things into your own hands. Self-publishing is an affordable way to get your book out there. Despite popular belief, a self-published book can become a bestseller. The Martian by Andy Weir and Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James are just two examples.
