Mini-Quiz: Reasons to Self-Publish

by Ron Kurtus (22 February 2010)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. What publisher rejection reason would point to self-publishing?

Your writing style is awful

You need a good literary agent to submit to us

The market for your book is too narrow for sufficient sales

2. What is one reason for the slow turnaround time with publishers?

They print many more at a time than a self-publisher would

Workers in publishing houses often don't show up for work

Publishers want to make sure you appreciate their effort

3. What is a reason you can make more money per book in self-publishing?

You set your own profit above printing and distributing costs

Publishers often don't know what price to set on a book

Self-published books are larger and more expensive

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a champion in being valuable. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
