So you want to settle down and write a book, but you aren't exactly sure where to start? Sometimes, the scariest part of the entire journey is facing down that blank page and actually putting words to paper. Never fear, because every great author has once stood in your shoes and felt like an imposter. With a little practice, perseverance, and luck you will be well on your way to being published in no time at all!
This book can help you along your journey becoming a published author. It is filled with tips and advice from someone who learned a lot of lessons about how not to do things in the publishing industry, and I learned them the hard way. Now, however, I have published more than fifteen separate books in eight different genres, written hundreds of blog articles across multiple blogs, and won more than ten literary awards in multiple competitions.
So get ready for your journey in the first book in the Self-Publishing Made Easy(er) series and learn how to write your first book!
You wrote your book! Congratulations! It's time to take a few minutes to pat yourself on the back for a job well-done. You've just done something that millions of people imagine doing but very few actually manage to pull off.
But, don't celebrate for too long, because you've only just begun your self-publishing journey.There's a long road ahead of you, and you're moving into the deep end of the pool. For many people, it takes years to learn the best methods for publishing a book, and the market is constantly changing and evolving.
Never fear, because I'm here to guide you along the way. Rather than give you a list of the current best resources, I'm going to teach you how to find those resources on your own and keep up with market trends. You'll go from zero to one-hundred in no time flat and give your book the best possible chance of succeeding!
You wrote and published your book, and now you're looking to take the next step in your career and begin marketing it. This is a phase that many authors never get to, and even fewer actually master. Marketing is constantly evolving, new companies pop up and disappear overnight, and everyone is looking for an edge.
So how do you make a name for yourself when the market is so saturated? Often, it feels like you're screaming into the void when you market, and so few efforts even manage to return your investment. If you aren't careful, it is easy to get swallowed up into the world of marketing your book.
You need to focus your efforts and follow the 80/20 principle. Spend time, money, and energy on the 20% of things that return 80% of results. Still, that's easier said than done, and this third volume of Self-Publishing Made Easy(er) will help you do just that!
You have published your book and begun marketing, and now you're turning your attention toward other details. Few people understand the power of an author platform, and only a small number of these people can actually generate one in practice. With this book, I'm going to help you design a platform for your writing that will pay off for years to come.
Build lifelong readers and find easy ways to send content across multiple platforms. If you want to be a serious writer then you need to reach readers, and this guide will help you do just that!
