A major advantage of self publishing is that you retain all the rights to your book. With trade publishing, a publishing house buys the right to publish your book. Although you own the copyright and get royalties, you can never take your book away or make changes to it without the publishing house's permission. In contrast, self-publishing means that you retain all the rights to your book forever. You can edit it, re-release it and change the cover whenever you wish. You can also change the sales price. All rights to change and distribute the work belong to you.
