More than 80% of Americans would like to be authors. While many writers seek assistance from traditional publishers, many find their own success as a self-published author. Author K.

Renee. Since then she has written over 23 urban titles to grace our bookshelves.
Many authors struggle with deciding on traditional publishing versus self-publishing. Self-publishing brings about the following benefits:
- You earn 100% of your royalties. That’s right! Traditional publishers may give an initial payout but the money from sales don’t go directly to you.
- You can market your book how you want. Whether it be a billboard sign like author, K. Renee or social media ads, it’s your choice.
- You decide on professional editors, book cover, print on demand and more to jumpstart your book publishing process. Traditional publishing companies may not allow you to have full creative control to share your story.
