Five of Ten Myth Busters of Publishing Revealed

At Spirit Media, we know the truth about self-publishing and are here to bust those myths and help you achieve your publishing dreams. Whether you’re a seasoned writer or just starting out, we have the tools and expertise to help you get your book into the world and into the hands of readers. With this valuable resource, you’ll be able to separate fact from fiction and make informed decisions about your publishing path. So if you’re ready to take the plunge and self-publish your book, read on for our first five myth busters:

Myth 1: “Publishing my book will make me rich.” Wrong! This is a common myth that many aspiring authors believe, but the truth is that most books don’t sell more than 250 copies. This is often due to a lack of branding and marketing efforts by the author. At Spirit Media, we understand the importance of marketing and work closely with our authors to ensure that their books reach a wide audience.

Myth 2: “No one will ever buy my book.” Wrong! This couldn’t be further from the truth. The global book publishing industry is projected to exceed $112.5 billion in 2022, and there is a demand for all types of books, including Christian nonfiction. At Spirit Media, we pride ourselves on publishing books that the world will love to read.

Myth 3: “It’s better to publish with a traditional publisher than to self-publish.” Wrong! This myth is often perpetuated by traditional publishers, but the truth is that self-publishing can be just as successful, if not more so. Any advance that a traditional publisher pays is based on the author’s marketing potential, but in the end, it is the publisher, not the author, that makes the majority of the profits. With self-publishing, you retain control over your book and keep a larger percentage of the profits.

Myth 4: “Self-publishing means I have to do it myself.” Wrong! This is a common misconception, but the truth is that most authors don’t self-publish themselves. Instead, they use companies like Spirit Media to handle the logistics of getting their book to market. We offer a range of self-publishing packages that take care of everything from formatting and design to distribution and marketing.

Myth 5: “All self-publishing companies are equal.” Wrong! This is simply not true. Spirit Media is a leading self-publishing company that offers a range of services that are unparalleled in the industry. We publish every book in ebook, paperback, hardback, and audiobook formats, and we do it faster and cheaper than any other publishing company in the world.
