Books on Book writing, publishing & promoting
A unique book for the ones who are not fun of social media and who are not willing to invest their next 5 years building their author platform: A hope for Instant earnings.
I have been helping authors to publish and promote their books on kindle for around 4 years now, and I must admit that social media, blogging and the rest regular promo tactics need a lot of time and determination in order to work. I have helped people to become Amazon bestsellers, but if they don’t put constant effort within a long period of time, they won’t earn a living from their books. What I love in this book is that it is one of the rare ones from the “kindle publishing subject” that does not talks about bestselling. It talks about SELLING. And this is extremely different. Because, as already said, you can be a struggling Bestseller author, and you can also be a quite wealthy author without the bestseller’s status. What do you prefer? That is up to you. You might want both, right? So, focusing back to this book:
I adore the author’s writing. It is so funny and clever. I tend to laugh often while reading it, and then I share with my hubby the jocks. He is hilarious. In addition, he gives a crazy amount of resources, many of whom, I didn’t know about. The book is priceless, for the resources alone.
One issue I find is that it gets into too many details on how to create a stunning cover and things like that – when I would rather have a separated book on those subjects.
It is a big book and it needs time to be read, studied, and digested. Obviously it has some great information that I have not found on other books of this subject, it is quite focused on the kindle area and how to manipulate for your behalf kindle algorithms etc. of course, it is not a brainer; where would you rather have your book ad? On kindle page or on FaceBook? It is no brainer, but how many of us spend tons of money on fb with no results wandering why “this thing doesn’t work” and “what’s wrong with me”…
I strongly recommend it, but I would give you one advice: don’t just read it and put it aside. Use it, reread it, follow its advice and be consistent. Success and money do not come by reading. They come through consistent action.
