Choosing a publishing direction can be difficult. With such a large book market, the available options tend to be confusing and overwhelming. Before submitting work and choosing to pursue a traditional publisher, it’s important that an author researches his or her options. Sam Staley (SR Staley), award-winning author, film critic, and educator, has worked with a variety of publishing houses and has advice for authors who are starting their career. In the clip below, he explains the benefits of working with a small press traditional publishing house. One of the primary benefits is the flexibility and swift action that small publishers can use to work with their authors. This approach allows a press to understand an author as an individual with unique goals and processes. Often, larger houses understand authors in economic terms only, which can be frustrating. Staley also explains several types of publishing houses. This includes the differences between mainstream presses, indie presses, and self-publishing. Each have their own purpose and sets of pros and cons. Listen to the clip below for more information on how to choose your publishing press.
