    Self Publishing for Profit with Author Chris Kennedy

    in Writing

    Do you have a book in your head? 

    Statistics show that 81% of people have a story they want to write, but very few actually do it. For most, this is because they either don’t know how to enter the publishing process, or they feel their writing isn’t good enough. Self-Publishing for Profit was designed to help you overcome both of these fears by giving you detailed publishing guidance, while simultaneously helping you become a better writer. 

    Produced by veteran independent author and self-publisher Chris Kennedy, Self-Publishing for Profit details the plan he used to sell almost 40,000 copies of his books in his first year, after starting with nothing but a story. Not only will readers learn how to produce ebooks, but also print books, audio books, and more! 

    Self-Publishing for Profit is the first book that gives authors all of the tips required for success. It not only shows how to design business and marketing plans that will help them be successful in the short term, but also how to improve their writing skills for long term success. It does so without requiring large outlays of cash, giving new authors a two-pronged strategy for success that anyone can follow.

    Book Marketing Strategy: The Real Costs of Self-Publishing a Book

    in Entrepreneur

    The world of self-publishing looks fairly simple, right? I mean, you write a manuscript using Microsoft Word, design a cover using Adobe Photoshop, open a free (Amazon) Createspace or (Ingram) Lightning Source account, upload your files, and sit back and watch your book sales profits skyrocket - almost like magic - overnight. Sound easy, huh? So then, why do most self-published authors only sell, on average, 200 books before their title hits the wall? Even as a self-published author of only one title, you must still conduct business. And, as a business owner (entrepreneur), you must comprehensively understand the rules of engagement - like how much you need to spend and when you might expect to gain a return on your investment. Most self-published authors are 99% clueless when it comes to realistic expectations and how much money they will realistically spend throughout their self-publishing process. So then, what are the REAL costs of self-publishing a book? That is our focus on this edition of, “The Strategist Radio LIVE."
