Today’s feature story “Going Small to Make it Big” looks at some of the advantages of small press publishing, which can include increased personal attention, more flexible program, higher priority for marketing within the house, and the ability to have more direct influence on the publishing process.
Yet, there are some advantages to large press publishing, not the least of which is the potential for a larger advance, broader distribution, wider foreign rights sales, increased marketing and review coverage.
And you have an entire community of authors who have sworn-off ever working with a publisher, believing they can have a better experience by taking control of the entire process on their own by self-publishing.
Of course, as a result of changes in the industry the gap between all three is closing every day.
