Well-known writers who self published

When you listen to writers, both the well-known ones of yesteryears and the modern-day ones, they have similar experiences about publishing. Their manuscripts are declined by so many publishers. But, fortunately most authors are attempting something different instead of giving up. They turn to self publishing to have their books to the target markets.

In some cases, self publishing is the best option and quite often it is the only way for writers to see their book in the market. Several of the famous authors who self published:

· T.S Eliot

· Stephen King

· Mark Twain

· Walt Whitman

· James Joyce

· Edgar Allan Poe

· John Grisham

These are generally only a few of the famous writers who've published their books and produce the bestseller status. If they didn't take this drastic step from early on, then you would not find classics like the House of Usher; Huckleberry Finn and Tamerlane. Some of these writers still publish their books despite they became well-known, which allows them to keep full control of the marketing. They earned more profits along the way. They didn't give up after the major publishers rejected their work and end up selling millions of copies for their own efforts.

Effective book marketing is an important part in self-publishing. At times, you will come across authors will start working on self publishing after having a good idea, without thinking of the marketing factor. In reality, if you want to become successful then marketing should touch on every part of the work. Good marketing will surely help a lot in reaching your desired market.

As you can see, there are many well-known authors that have received huge success from self-published work. You will definitely be in good company if you decide to publish your own masterpiece. If you think maybe that you can't do the self publishing successfully by yourself, then you could spend some money to get your manuscript edited, proof read and polished by professional. This is a little price to pay if you want to prevent refusal as an aspiring author.
