Crossover Offers from Self-Publishing to Standard

As I have actually been stating for time, the indie side of posting will gradually become a significant means into standard posting. And a means with power that permits an author to negotiate a much better contract.

However up till this early morning I didn't have any real evidence on that aside from a couple of news articles about the big or different books that started indie and went conventional and a couple of friends it had taken place to.

This early morning Publishers Marketplace gave out their details about 6 figure deals in posting that were reported to them. Incorporating nonfiction, kids's, and fiction, there had to do with 300 six figure offers stated to Publisher's Marketplace. (There were a load more, of course, since a lot of bargains are not reported.).

Author's Marketplace followed with the line:
"As everybody knows, initially self-published books created a number of prominent crossover deals in 2012-- though in total numbers, we taped 45 such deals in all.".

Of the 300 around 6 figure offers that were stated to them in 2012, 45 were from publications that started self-published.

Indie posting is now a clear path in.

I see no reason now why every publication should not start indie published first, even if the utmost objective for the book is typical.

-- You don't waste all the time awaiting editors and representatives.
-- You are generating income, return on your time investment, right from the start.
-- You have working out power when provided a traditional contract.
-- You have information on sales when supplied a standard contract.
