Booklets are simple. Books, more complicated, and often books are made more complicated than they need to be. Here’s a quick comparison for you:
Take a long time to write Can be finished in a few days
Need editing by a pro Need proofreading by you
Need a lot of rewriting You correct errors one time
Might need agent No agent needed
Submit to publishers Publish yourself
High cost to self publish Low cost to self publish
High competition from other books Almost no competition
High cost to promote Low cost to promote
Take a long time to get to market Can be on the market in a month
Take a long time to recoup investment Can start making money right away
Have short shelf and possibly sales life Can sell for years and years
Lots of red tape from publishing industry No dealing with publishing industry
Publisher keeps most of profits You keep all profits
This list could be much longer, but for the sake of brevity here I’ve listed the main concerns.
To your riches!
