The landscape is more complicated than it used to be, so if you’re considering writing and publishing a book, you have more opportunities than ever, but also more choices to make. In other words, it’s good to get the lay of the land before you travel through. Here are some thoughts on book publishing alternatives by Jane Friedman, a noted authority on the book publishing scene:

“There are now many varieties of traditional publishing and self-publishing—with evolving models and varying contracts.

Book Publishing Alternatives By Jane Friedman

You won’t find a universal, agreed-upon definition of what it means to “traditionally publish” or “self-publish.”

It’s not an either/or proposition. You can do both.”

The proliferation of different publishers and different options offered is what makes things complicated now. Naturally, publishing a Kindle book on Amazon is one alternative that can be easily understood and accomplished. It’s a good place to start.

But, a Kindle book is not right for every situation, especially if you’re developing a speaking schedule for your information business. There are times when a tangible book is needed, and being a speaker means you will need tangible books as well.

First, you will need a book to provide to meeting planners and others who are making the decision to book you as a speaker. And second, you will also want tangible books to sell to the audience when they get interested in you and your topic.

Check out Friedman’s infographic depicting and explaining the five basic book publishing alternatives,  because it will help you understand what’s going on in book publishing now.
