THE PROS AND CONS OF PUBLISHING WITH A SMALL PUBLISHER

 

Robert Lee BrewerAs the editor of Writer’s Market, I’m often quizzed by writers about which is the better option: self-publishing, or getting an agent and trying to land a deal with a big book publisher.

While many professionals seem to acknowledge only these two paths to publication as well, there’s a third route that should not be overlooked: the small press. There’s a whole field of reputable publishers outside of New York’s “Big Five” that can offer the support of the traditional publishing model on a smaller scale—and most accept unagented submissions.

So what are the pros and cons of publishing with a small press, and what should you expect if you decide to give it a go?

  1. Very interesting article. But I guess you need to do your homework. I have heard some pretty rough stories from authors signed to small press publishers…none of the ones mentioned I’m happy to say! Having said that, the big 6 dont exactly invest much cash or effort into newbie authors these days either, you still end up doing all your own promo and marketing…which is probably what we need the most help with lol!
