Self-publishing is currently the fastest growing sector of the publishing industry, and it's easy to see why. Print On Demand technology put an end to expensive print runs and distribution problems for self-published authors. This, combined with user-friendly ebook publishing offered by services such as Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing and Smashwords , has made self-publishing easier than it's ever been.
Add to that the fact that social media, blogging and online communities make marketing your books easier and more cost effective than ever, and it makes perfect sense that indie authors all over the world are deciding to keep creative control of their projects and publish on their own terms.
I had many reasons for self-publishing my books, and if you're an indie author, you probably did too. If you're still on the fence about it, check out this slideshare from EBook Review Gal to see if any of these might apply to you and your book.
