The No-Luck-Required Guide to Publishing
In 2013, Johnny B. Truant and Sean Platt published 1.5 million words and made their full-time livings as indie authors. In Write. Publish. Repeat., they tell you how exactly how they did it: how they created over 15 independent franchises across 50+ published works, how they turned their art into a logical, sustainable business, and how any independent author can do the same to build a sustainable, profitable career with their writing.
Write. Publish. Repeat. explains the current self-publishing landscape and covers the truths and myths about what it means to be an indie author now and in the foreseeable future. It explains how to create books your readers will love and will want to return to again and again. Write. Publish. Repeat. details expert methods for building story 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. The book also 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.
This book is not a formula with an easy path to follow. It is a guidebook that will help you build a successful indie publishing career, no matter what type of writer you are... so long as you're the type who's willing to do the work.
Excellent guide to self publishing
I read this book in just a few days. Not only is it full of helpful information, but it flows so well I couldn't put it down. If this writers' guide was such a page turner I can't wait to read their fiction and just downloaded one of their fiction books.
I highly recommend for anyone interested in self- publishing!
Fantastic Guide and Great Insight Into Self Publishing
I am a fan of the podcast but I must admit it took me a bit to figure out the title of the book and realize that I was not looking for Write Publisher Pete. That is pretty funny though. The book is great, and while self publishing is still a daunting task, I'm actually much more confident in the journey to publishing my first fiction book. Thanks for the great advice and I would say this is a great book for those new to self publishing or finding challenges in the process of learning the best way to approach their books.
