Thorne Self Publishing Survey 2022

I'm Dr. Heidi Thorne, MBA/DBA, a nonfiction author and self publishing advocate. As part of my service to the author community, I have conducted past survey research on self publishing industry trends, as well as consumer book buying habits. For the 2022 survey on self publishing, I need your help in funding this research.

The surveys personally cost me hundreds of dollars each to conduct for recruitment of participants, survey platform fees, and my research time. I would like to expand the number of participants in 2022. In 2018, 163 authors participated. My goal for 2022 is 250-500 self published authors.

Data collection will begin in July 2022 and conclude in late November. Results will be published on my YouTube channel and podcast in early 2023. Click here to see the survey questions or participate (self published authors only, please).

Thank you for your help in funding this research which will help authors better understand the publishing industry!
