What are the benefits of e-books over print books for self-publishers?

Areas of interest


If you’re self-publishing your book, it’s worth thinking about publishing only in e-book form to begin with. Generally speaking, it’s a lot cheaper and as there is no guarantee of sales, we would advise caution when considering the print option.

With e-books, the initial set-up costs are lower, distribution is easier and e-books can be completed and uploaded within a matter of hours. Furthermore, the lower production costs means you can set a lower price for your e-book, even having the option of giving it away for free – a promotional tool that is often used successfully by self-published authors.
