Self publishing or a publisher?
Going the ebook route, but wondering about a publisher with regards to possibly selling paperbacks and audiobook versions of tales I write? Bearing in mind that I can only promote books online, because of my disability, would a publisher consider me a good prospect, and would they just consider paperbacks and audiobooks, and leave sales from my ebooks and any related money accrued from film scripts, out of the contract?
Would it be a good prospect, any percentage of sales money from a publishing contract? Have heard of print on demand. Would that be more beneficial? Only when a sale is to be made, and keep all the profits to myself?
Just read a thread on this discussion one, about one of the TB members who allowed their ebook to be downloaded for free, as a promotion. Well over 1800 copies downloaded over two days. Do you get any money from that, via the KDP Programme? How does that help if you are giving it away free? Puzzled? They were peeved about their publisher, and had to wrestle their book away from that contract to try the ebook route. Heed the warning perhaps?
