You are an author. Be proud. Be excited. Relish the glory of a finished book. But hold on, don’t get ahead of yourself. The last thing you want to do is publish your book before it’s ready. Yes, there is still more work to do to produce your book professionally and to make sure it sells. Make it easier by following the complete step-by-step process in this 5th edition of the Self-Publishing Boot Camp Guide for Independent Authors. With over twenty years as a writer, self-publisher, web developer, and publishing coach, King has distilled what you need to know to succeed in plain language even a beginner can follow. You’ll learn how to do critical market research so your book reaches the right readers, how to find book reviewers and early readers who will become your superfans, and how to produce a high-quality book to professional standards so your book competes with the best in your genre. Find out how to set up a publishing business, how to choose a print-on-demand and ebook distribution service, how to market using social media, and how to reach the traditional media when it’s time to launch your publicity campaign. This all-inclusive guide will help you do it all yourself or, if you’ve got the resources to hire out tasks, you’ll learn how to negotiate with editors, designers, marketing and PR consultants, and other publishing professionals. You'll also get access to reader’s resources to get updates to this guide and other bonuses.
What is your book about? Can you tie it to a local business? They could probably use your help right now! Here's an idea. Co-create an event that includes a reading, autographed books, and a sale on a product. Sign books at their location or make it virtual and offer curbside pickup. You'd both send invites to your email lists and list it in the local news. Maybe a journalist for your small-town news would be interested in writing a story about it. Doing it there? Livestream it! It's as easy as getting a Zoom account. Let's support our local businesses now!
