There are many stories of people who have self-published and have had their books reprinted by a trade publisher. Sometimes self publishing is the only way to show a publisher that your book is worth taking a chance on. In addition, you often get more interaction with and feedback from your readers and your hands on marketing experience will give you an edge when promoting your book to a trade publisher.
