Is There a Book Inside You?
As you may know, I've been actively involved with writing and publishing for many years. And over the past four years in particular, I've made a good living exclusively from the sales of my self-published books, reports, audio programs, and more.
It's how I plan to spend the rest of my days, as I truly feel I've found my right livelihood.
I know first-hand the sense of personal satisfaction that comes from putting out your own book. I also understand the deep sense of purpose and meaning a book can give you when it touches people's lives in ways you never imagined.
I've benefited greatly from my pursuit of do-it-yourself book publishing, and now I'm on a mission to empower others to enjoy the same thrills as I have.
I've done that for the past three years serving as president of the St. Louis Publishers Association. And now I'm taking things a step further with the release today of my new audio/ebook package called "Self-Publishing Success Secrets 101."
It's an ideal resource for first-time authors and other self-publishers wanting to kick-start their book publishing efforts.
What's different about this guide? A lot of the popular publishing manuals out there are hefty and cover a lot of ground. But the sheer volume of technicalities causes confusion and information overload for many aspiring authors.
That's why I created this guide. To give you a quick crash course on the most important things you need to know to become a successful self-published author -- and to share some of the untraditional methods that got me where I am today.
Anyway, take a closer look at
I'd love to hear what you think.
P.S. Do you prefer to read, or listen to books on your iPod or CD? I love doing both. That's why "Self-Publishing Success Secrets 101" comes as a 25-page ebook AND 50 minutes of MP3 audio files. Print it and read it, or burn it and listen on the go. You'll have multiple ways to soak up these self-publishing tips and advice.
