Hello everyone! This is a topic that pertains to self-publishing over traditional publishing.
I’ve been really interested in making my own Publishing Imprint for my self published works. I think it’s a great idea, as just having a logo and a publisher to put on a book cover’s spine and back ads a look of legitimacy to the buyer. I also like the idea of being able to group works in one place, as I’m considering adopting different pen names for different kinds of works (one for sci-fi, another for journals, etc.)
I don’t mean that I want to become a publisher and take in other people’s submissions, etc. It would be a publishing imprint that wouldn’t make me any money, it would just exist as a way to add legitimacy to works visually. I’ve read up on other self-published authors doing this for themselves.
Does anyone have any thoughts or experience in this? This is one of the articles that sparked the interest in me:
