Recently Bowker released statistics on self publishing over the past 5 years, which were also the topic of a presentation at Frankfurt Book Fair.
Looking at these statistics, one might think that self publishing is a new phenomenon. However, we have put together some videos that show self published author experiences over the past 30 years. The difference now is the ease of the process as well as the mass volume that an author can sell in a short period of time.
In addition, these authors tell several different ways that self publishing leads to traditional publishing either through obtaining a book contract or starting a company that publishers other authors.
