Summary

Sell books the smart way.

Five years ago releasing a book as an indie author meant uploading it, then begging everyone you knew to buy it. That method simply doesn't work anymore. Fortunately, there's a better way.

Amazon has spent billions of dollars over the last decade building the world's best sales engine. They use machine learning to sell massive piles of books, and that engine is just waiting for you to tap into it. This is the book that will teach you how.

Ready to become a six-figure author? You'll learn:

  • Why a sale isn't just a sale - who you sell to is more important than how many
  • How to find your target audience
  • How to train Amazon to sell for you

This book made me a best seller

What made the experience of listening to Six Figure Author the most enjoyable?

The content was everything it promised and then some. It was written in an easy-to-digest, conversational manner. I felt as though I was sitting in a café with the author, listening to him explain his model for success.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. I stopped several time to take notes.

Any additional comments?

This is the real deal. I recommend this book HIGHLY.

very helpful

There's so much helpful info for authors in here. The tips and advise make a lot of sense, and I know will help me along my author journey.

The narration had great pacing and was easy to listen to.

Given up trying to write fiction? Not anymore!

I'm gonna gush here. I really feel this way. Now is the time. No more are publishers standing in the way of your writing career. A whole host of new authors are finding success in electronic publishing. And get this--those writers are selling fiction. Chris Fox is one of them.

Fox had gotten out of mortgage trading just before the crash in 2007, but was living on $12 an hour in Northern California with four roomies and, as he put it, getting stoned and playing video games and putting on weight. Thinking he had nothing to lose, he decided to give his failed writing career another try. When he delved into the world that's been created by Amazon's Kindle, he discovered the keys to making it work. He's sharing them in this book, the techniques he used to revitalize his writing and sell his fiction. He really is making more than $100,000 a year on his fiction alone.

I've decided to give it a try too--I'm on my third book in a series, and I've got Chris Fox to thank for it. Go for it!

Much more value than I expected!

I resisted this book for a long time, as I don't like the idea of falling down the rabbit hole of data analysis to try and sell books.

But now I realize I should have read this a long time ago!

I was actually turned on to this book by a webinar with the author promoting his new advertising course in which he said the majority of the material in the course is covered in this book.

This book really was not what I expected it to be. Rather than a deep dive into data analysis, here we have a strong emphasis on fundamentals that offer a firm grounding to build on in your journey to becoming a full-time author.

I definitely found a number of choice nuggets, as well as a deep evolution in my understanding of how Amazon and the other retailers work.

Fantastic read

Another get book to this series. I've bought every single one of the series, both the book and audio. Audio is a great way to use my 45 minutes of commute both ways. The written copy makes a great reference.

not bad but a lot of common sense

I respect the work put into book but i expected new innovative strategies and most of the book is old common techniques.

Good experience

I enjoyed a lot of what Mr Fox has to say. The book is succinct and affordable. The price matches the value very well. It’s a great listen at 1.5 X, and I learned some great things about how to improve my marketing on Amazon.
