Self Publishing – Your Book Project @CLC Kenya

By comparison to traditional publishing, in self-publishing, the author bears all of the publishing costs but earns a higher share of the profits as opposed to earning royalties.

The self-publishing landscape has changed considerably in the past two decades with new technologies such as the Internet, and the $1 billion market continues to change at a rapid pace. Increasingly there are numerous alternatives to traditional publishing, and self-publishing is becoming the first choice for writers.

CLC Kenya has set itself the goal of promoting self-publishing for local authors. Most quality Christian publishing comes from the Western world, but there is a need for  African voices to speak into our situation in Africa.  We are passionate about promoting content from Africa to impact Africa and the rest of the world. As part of CLC International family, we work tirelessly to ensure we meet the global standards in publishing while maintaining our African heritage.

CLC Kenya gives the opportunity to Christian leaders, writers and influencers to have their work published in a professional but affordable way. Previously the barriers to local publishing were too high but now the changes in technology have opened the doors to new possibilities and opportunities. After decades in the book industry, we understand the process of publishing can be very complex for authors. CLC Kenya is here to help you!

PROS OF SELF PUBLISHING

Speed: An author finds out right away whether a book is a hit with readers; there is not a six-month or longer delay typical with an established publisher since the usual back-and-forth steps with a publisher are bypassed. It is possible to release a book within a few weeks after it’s finished. Further, it is possible to avoid the lengthy process of trying to find a literary agent to secure a publishing contract.

Freedom to begin the next book. An author can self-publish and then begin work on the next project, potentially being more prolific, although this presumes that the first book won’t need any marketing effort.

A greater share of royalties. Self-published authors earn four to five times more per unit than if an author works with a traditional publisher, sometimes 70% of the sale price.

Pitch books straight to the readers. There is no intermediary censoring what might be shown to the public. The route to readers is more direct.

CONS OF SELF PUBLISHING

HIGH RATE OF LOW QUALITY BOOKS

With the growth in activity in the self-publishing industry, the book world has become flooded with titles, much of it of low quality, and it is becoming increasingly difficult for self-publishers to differentiate one’s offerings from the stew of average offerings. The quality of self-published works varies considerably.

HIGH RATE OF LOW SALES

Most self-published books sell very few copies, although there are approximately a dozen books that sell into the millions.
