The Heidi Thorne Show

2022 Self Publishing Survey Invitation | Episode 256

July 26, 2022

I’ve decided to do another round of my Thorne Self Publishing Survey to see how self published authors are doing in terms of income, motivations, and challenges in 2022. All self published authors (and authors who do both self and traditional publishing) are invited to participate in the survey at It's anonymous, 10 quick click-to-answer questions, and takes about 2 minutes.

I did the first survey in 2016, and planned to do it every two years. The last survey was in 2018. 2020 was supposed to be the next survey. But 2020 was, well, 2020. So I skipped doing it that year, and postponed it to 2022.

I discuss more about the goals and plans for the survey, as well as what's been updated for the 2022 survey. Thank you for your participation!
