Summary

Do you want to successfully self-publish in eBook, print, or audiobook formats?

There are thousands of new books being published every day, but many self-published books quickly sink to the bottom of the pile.

Many authors are frustrated because there are so many options for self-publishing, and they don't know which one to choose or what will be best for their book.

Others spend thousands of dollars to publish and end up brokenhearted with the result. 

But it doesn't have to be this way. 

I've spent the last seven years self-publishing best-selling fiction and nonfiction books and in 2011, I left my day job to become a full-time author entrepreneur. I've made lots of mistakes along the way, but through the process of self-publishing 17 books, I've learned the most effective way to publish and market your books. In this book, I'll share everything with you.

The book includes: 

  • What you need to know before you self-publish 
  • Why self-publishing an eBook is a good idea
  • How to format an eBook 
  • Exclusivity and going direct
  • How to self-publish an eBook

  • How do you get paid when you self-publish? 
  • Book marketing principles

Plus, links to more useful resources.

Wow, inspirational

This is a much better book than I expected. At first I thought this was just a self-promotional equivalent of an infomercial. It’s not. It is a satisfying book to listen to. I will probably look at other of her books.

Joanna Delivers, as she always does

As a rather new indie author, I appreciate Joanna's insights. With years of experience growing with the ebook and print on demand aspects of publishing, she knows what she's talking about. She is also an excellent narrator of her own work. Why re-invent the wheel? If you're an author, I highly recommend this book, as well as her podcasts. I know how busy I am, writing, marketing, and keeping up with daily household chores, so I appreciate audio as a time-saver.
