Hello Fellow Writer/Entrepreneur,
I‘m on a mission to help as many writers, business leaders, and entrepreneurs as possible expand their authority by becoming independently published authors. That’s why I wrote the most extensive e-book to date on e-book self-publishing, titled, “E-book Publishing: Create Your Own Brand of Digital Books”.
“The most thorough self-publishing guide anywhere” is not just a tagline full of empty promises. I’ve been watching the rise of e-book publishing since Amazon introduced the Kindle in 2007. I’ve watched the early adopters go on to huge success, and I’ve read the stories of how they rose from total obscurity to international superstar. I’ve admired such pioneers as John Locke, Amanda Hocking, J.A. Konrath, and Joanna Penn, all of whom have become successful independent authors selling their fiction by the boatloads. But can you name one independent nonfiction sensation?
The most thorough self-publishing guide anywhere
Most self-published nonfiction authors make their mark selling print books (not that there’s anything wrong with that). I’d like to change that.
How My Book Is Different Than Your Average Book on E-book Self-Publishing
Most books on the subject of e-book publishing fall into two categories. They’re either written by successful independent authors who hire someone to do the technical work of creating the e-books or they are written by self-publishing gurus who focus entirely on e-book creation. My e-book compiles the best of both worlds and leaves out the fluff.
The drawback to the first type of e-book is the author really doesn’t know much about the technical side of creating e-books. They’re good at writing and marketing, but someone else does the grunt work.
With the second type of e-book, you get nothing on marketing, writing book descriptions and metadata, and very little on how to run your independent author platform like a publishing business. While there are books that will teach you how to price your e-books, that’s about as far as they go into the actual nuts and bolts of the independent publishing business.
I will teach you all of that AND MORE!
