How to Publish an Indie Book
An Asymmetrical Guide
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
We started Asymmetrical for a laundry list of reasons, but all those reasons point back to one underlying goal: Adding Value. If Asymmetrical has a single objective, that's it. We know that if we add enough value to enough people through Asymmetrical, then we'll be able to raise the tide of Independent Publishing, not just our own work, but Indie Publishing as a whole. That way everyone benefits; a rising tide lifts all boats.
Adding Value is the reason we've put together this Guide. We want to prove to you that you needn't worship at the altar of the old guard, that you needn't "submit" to anyone. You can successfully publish on your own, soup to nuts, controlling every morsel of the Process.
The present day is the most exciting time in history to be an Author. No longer are you beholden to the gatekeepers; no longer must you compromise your art. For the first time in publishing history, you are in control. We know this first hand. The Authors of this Guide aren't some hacks who just write about writing. Nope. Rather, when we weren't happy with the publishing landscape, we took matters into our own hands; we refused to wait for someone else's permission to publish our work.
And guess what: we've been successful. We've published over 30 Books (nonfiction, fiction, and memoirs), several of which have been bestsellers; we've toured internationally; and we've established audiences larger than most Traditionally Published Authors.
But that's because we're not just Authors, and neither are you.
Over the course of is Guide, we’ll show you, based on our own experience as successful Independent Authors, how to publish an Indie Book.
