Write. Publish. Repeat.: The No-Luck-Required Guide to Self-Publishing Success by Sean Platt and Johnny B. Truant with David Wright
My Goodreads review was simply: “Phenomenal. Definitely a must-read for prospective indies.”
While I certainly think there is strength in brevity, at least when it comes to fiction, I’ll elaborate here because 1.) this isn’t fiction and 2.) this book deserves more than eight words.
This is probably one of the best, if not the best, book about self-publishing that I’ve ever read. They cover everything from tackling the self-publishing myths, creating professional products to marketing, getting reviews, and continuing the process with more books.
These guys also perfected the idea of creating sales funnels, meaning that a freebie leads people to the next product and the next and the next, all while slowly increasing the price so that readers have a risk-free way of trying out your books.
It’s been a while since I read it, but I certainly gained a lot of ideas from it. In fact, it probably deserves a reread…
(NOTE: I never reread books…)
What I Found Most Helpful: The Self-Publishing Podcast guys are great at structuring your publishing model of off evergreen ideas that aren’t dependent on the algorithms of a specific site. This book is filled with all kinds of marketing advice among other things. Definitely a must-read for a future/current indie author.
