Self publish or wait for the book deal?

Self publish now or wait for book deal with a traditional publisher?

This is a very common question I hear in the book publishing world

The answer: There is no right, wrong, or best way.

It depends on your goals and often you can have both…

Take for example, Alex and Bob, some clients I worked with last summer, who were so excited about their book, Getting to Hell Yes, they decided to produce their own ebook give it away for FREE!!! Sounds crazy, right? And sounds like they missed the boat for traditionally publishing, right?

Nope and nope!

By giving away their book (and selling it in Kindle format), their enthusiasm, their new audience and hence, their raised visibility, helped them land a book deal with a traditional publisher – which is exactly what they wanted.

Congrats again Alex Jamieson and Bob Gower!
