Selfpublishing auf der fbm
Hier kommen (endlich) ein paar meiner Eindrücke von der diesjährigen Frankfurter Buchmesse.
Ich hatte meiner Übersetzer-Kollegin Anja Bauermeister ein paar Infos für ihren Blog Indies Go German versprochen und das alles in einem kleinen Beitrag zusammengefasst.
Hier ist ein Auszug, den Rest gibt es bei ihr:
„Especially the self-publishing area has grown during the last years and usually showcases new technical developments and opportunities for authors. This includes a broad variety of service providers who would like to help you publish your book – for a price, of course. But, although there are still those, who just want to get your money (vanity publishers), there are those who are actually helpful.
While the market is growing – and the possibilities seem almost endless – it becomes more and more important to know exactly what you need: The services offered differ greatly in what’s done for you and what you are enabled to do yourself. It’s about what do you want to do yourself, and what don’t you want to do yourself. And to which degree.“
