1. The right to your writing
As a self-publisher, you will be able to keep 100% of rights to your piece therefore you get all the decisions. There will be no one telling you how to do things or what you should be doing.
2. Finished Products

3. Save time
You can decide how long the book remains on the market. In traditional publications, it is generally 90 days. When you choose your own publishing, you can choose less or more times.
4. Find publishers
You don't need to find someone who is willing to publish you, you get the control. You can market your book where and when you want. Sometimes it's hard to find someone to publish your book and can take a lot of rejection before finding someone.
5. Print on demand(POD)
