“Way in” is unidiomatic “ way of” is correct idiom.

Also here way is also a verb so there can be ways of doing any work, had it been noun then their is a way to forest or way into the woods...

Hi PallabiKundu, globaldesi
An author rarely publishes and distributes the work himself/herself. The publishing and distributing part is done by the publisher.
B seems to suggest that the Author himself/herself is doing the publishing , that is why B and D are not correct.
A can be easily eliminated as being lengthy, unidiomatic and inferior to C and E.
Between C and E , the latter is better for using the pronoun " their" . E conveys the meaning more clearly.
" The work " in C instead of " their work " in E, seems to refer to any general work and not the Authors work.

Ans- E
