The independent book publishing industry has grown significantly over the years as the barriers to entry have lessened. A report by Statista highlights that growth year-over-year. With major technology companies like Amazon, Apple, Google, and others claiming a stake in the publishing industry – they have created unparalleled access for people looking to create content and publish books at a low or at no cost. In some of the same ways, independent authors and publishers alike have been able to create unique opportunities for themselves as well.
