You’ve wanted to be a writer for as long as you can remember. You worked endlessly on your novel, slaving away for days, weeks and months, all in an effort to make it perfect. Once written, you break your back editing it. Once, twice, three times. Often a fourth and fifth edit was made (if not more). Blood, sweat and tears went have gone into your masterpiece. Yet its written completion is only the beginning. Hunting down publishing houses, sending out copies of your work while waiting impatiently to hear back? It’s only just begun. But are those final steps necessary?

Today, writers are taking the book writing business into their own hands. And why shouldn’t they? Self Publishing is taking the world by storm and we couldn’t be happier about it. BookStats.org has introduced a comprehensive statistical analysis of how book publishing content is produced and sold. According to their statistics in 2010, eBook sales reached new heights when they produced $869 million dollars in revenue. Those numbers were astonishing then, but nothing prepared us for 2011’s sales numbers which toppled $2 billion. Way to go indie writers! That same year, eBooks represented approximately 15% of trade publishing revenue, which more than doubled their numbers in 2010. Incredible!

If you’re a writer and are looking to publish your work, now is the time. No longer are you at the mercy of traditional publishing houses, begging them to read your work and crossing your fingers that they’ll sign you to a deal. Break the mold! Make your own terms, write your own rules and get paid. Check out BookRix’s self publishing packages here.
