Self published

We have a team of skilled professionals who are dedicated to listening to your ideas and bringing them to life.

Self-publishing has experienced significant growth in recent years, primarily driven by digital technologies and online platforms.

According to industry reports, self-published titles accounted for a substantial share of the overall book market, with estimates ranging from 10% to 30%.

The rise of platforms such as Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP), Smashwords, and IngramSpark has made it easier for authors to self-publish their books in digital formats.

E-book Market:

E-books have become increasingly popular, allowing authors to reach a global audience quickly and affordably.

According to Statista, e-book sales in the United States reached approximately $3.44 billion in 2020, reflecting the growing demand for digital reading formats.

The convenience of e-books, coupled with the widespread adoption of e-readers, tablets, and smartphones, has contributed to their steady growth.

Print-on-Demand (POD) and Physical Book Printing:

Print-on-Demand technology has revolutionized the physical book printing industry, enabling cost-effective production of small print runs.

POD eliminates the need for large upfront print orders, reducing inventory costs and the risk of unsold books.

Many self-publishing platforms now offer integrated POD services, making it easier for authors to produce physical copies of their books as needed.
