One huge change to have hit the book world in recent years is the massive rise in self-publishing. Whilst ten years ago this was largely dismissed as “vanity publishing” that is now far from the truth. Some mainstream and previously conventionally published authors are producing self-published works. Many new authors have decided to take control of their own books and have pursued a huge variety of self-publishing models.
