Which is more important for a self published author, physical or ebook copies?


Both have advantages: ebooks aren't limited by stock or location and are generally cheaper. Physical books can sit on the shelves of local bookstores and can be handed to interested parties who aren't tech-savvy. But, which would you say is more important to have for an author looking to self publish?

    Very good points. I hadn't thought of it that way.

    I think the ideal scenario is both. I was asking because I was curious which one people think is more important and/or useful to the self published author. I suppose it's more of a personal preference.
