Write. Publish. Repeat. (The No-Luck-Required Guide to Self-Publishing Success)Author: Sean M. Platt and Johnny Truant Category: Self-Publishing Essentials
Are you ready to start making a full-time living with your stories?
Self-publishing isn’t as hard as most authors make it.
Write. Publish. Repeat. was written to save you from unnecessary struggle.
Yes, there is a lot to learn, and more competition than ever before, but for those storytellers who are willing to do the work, then set their efforts on repeat, there’s never been a better time to make a living as a writer.
Thousands of new books are published on Amazon every single day. The vast majority will never sell more than a handful of copies.
This is devastating for hard-working authors who care about their craft and are doing all of the things they’re “supposed to do” if they want to make it as a successful author.
But it’s confusing out there, with too many things to learn and not enough time to learn them. Worse, so much of the available advice comes from people who are in the business of selling advice. They’re either parroting what others have said, are making guesses based on assumptions or anecdotal evidence, or are using their personal yet minimal experience with a successful book or perhaps even a few to articulate loose strategies that often have an absurdly short shelf-life.
This book is different.
Write. Publish. Repeat., was written by successful authors who have been in the indie game since the very beginning. In the last ten years we’ve gone from zero books to a few hundred, with copies sold in the millions, film and television projects in the works, and hands-on work with hundreds of writers like you.
We’ve also made more mistakes than we can count. But we made them so you don’t have to.
This book explains how to create stories your readers will love and will want to return to again and again. It details expert methods for enhancing creativity, building worlds, characters, and plots, understanding your market (right down to your ideal reader), using the best tools possible to capture your draft, and explains proven best practices for editing. It discusses covers, titles, formatting, pricing, and publishing to multiple platforms, plus a bit on getting your books into print (and why that might not be a good idea!).
But most importantly, Write. Publish. Repeat. details the psychology-driven marketing plan that Sean and Johnny built to shape their stories into “products” that readers couldn’t help but be drawn into — thus almost automatically generating sales — and explores ways that smart, business-minded writers can do the same to future-proof their careers.
