In this book, you’re going to discover the little known insights only a handful of bestselling, self-published authors know. I want to make things very clear from the start, you can know 80 - 90% of the information presented out there about what it takes to be a successful author, and it may only be one or two little things you overlook that will kill your success.
How do I know this? Because I’ve coached hundreds of students all over the world in self-publishing. While many of them are highly educated, well read, and have attended many publishing and marketing seminars, they’re still struggling because of a few missing links I can catch right away when I look at their work.
I’ve written this book to provide you with clarity and insight about the big picture of book publishing for both non-fiction and fiction books based on my experience helping aspiring authors turn their businesses around. While it will be filled with practical tips and tools you can take away to immediately improve your book’s quality and book sales, I want to make it clear there’s a few things this book is not.
This is not a book about improving your writing skills, specific marketing tactics, or how to go through the technical process of publishing a book. There will be occasional tips for all of these things, but that’s not the point of this book. There are plenty of other books that cover these subjects in depth.
Instead, this book is meant to explain why even if you’ve read all those other books for authors, you might still be struggling to get results. It will show you the principles successful authors follow and struggling authors don’t.
