Current Trends in Traditional Publishing and Reasons to Consider

They are also focusing on more representation of smaller groups and minorities. This can be exciting for authors writing in these categories, and there are a few factors to consider when deciding if you will go the traditional publishing route or not.

Without a traditional publisher, all this work typically falls on the author and his or her own wallet.
