For David Thorne, a NYT Bestselling author, self-publishing has been more profitable than working with a traditional publisher.
In fact, the author has made more money from his newly self-published book I’ll Go Home Then; It’s Warm and Has Chairs, than he did from his book The Internet is a Playground, which was published by Penguin’s Tarcher imprint.

“I wanted to do something different. For my first book, the publisher took a lot of control over the layout. I was not happy with the typeface. I hated the cover. I had no say over any of that,” Thorne stated.
He set a sales goal that he wanted to earn as much money from his self-published [via Lulu] book in three months than he had with his traditionally published title. In two months, he achieved this goal and since the book was published March 15th he expects his sales on June 15th will surpass his goal by 43%.
