Is traditional book publishing worth the effort? Seth Godin says no. If you’ve never heard of Seth Godin, he’s the author of 12 titles – all published through traditional means.
Seth has stated that he’s finished with traditional publishing. He claims that it’s just not worth the effort that it takes to make it work, and from my own standpoint, he’s right.
Traditional book publishing is a very long, slow process which excludes most authors. Seth was one of the lucky ones. He got in, got published and made some serious money. But, he’s the exception, not the norm – even for the handful of other authors who do get in. Most authors make very little money through traditional publishing means.
This is one of the reasons why I make such a strong case for booklets. They’re small and easy to self publish – both electronically and in print. And although Seth publishes books rather than booklets, what he has to say regarding traditional publishing applies across the board.
