Présentation de l'éditeur
"Michael Rogan's writing is always direct and to the point with no holds barred. It's this kind of writing that should be used in all how-to books because it actually tells you "how-to" without all the theory behind it." -Lisa
"This book was a HUGE help to me in the launch of my debut novel. I don't know how I could have done it as successfully without the easy, step-by-step guidelines set out in this Kindle publishing guide. I surpassed my goal for the number of free downloads by over one thousand and was on several Best Seller lists in several countries. My advice to others: read this book, follow the guidelines, enjoy your success." Tex
Kindle publishing doesn't have to mean fifty-dollar royalty checks and hours spent updating countless Facebook pages all so that a couple hundred people may or may not grab a free copy of your book.
Kindle publishing can actually be the most magical thing of all to writers: the chance to have a lucrative self publishing career doing the thing they love most.
Writing words down.
We couldn't have said any of this 10 years ago. 10 years ago the New York traditional publishers owned the gate...and the gatekeepers...and the land surrounding the gatekeeper.
But now...as long as you have a great kindle ebook cover (and not one that looks like a fourteen-year-old with a bootleg copy of Photoshop made it...and you write a decent (and passionate) book then your self published book will look EXACTLY the same as a Stephen King novel.
Kindle publishing levels the playing field.
As long as you do it right.
That's why I decided to write this book. To show writers who are new to self publishing a simple step-by-step process for preparing, publishing and promoting their book.
And actually make a damn good living while you're at it.
In Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 we show how you build the ultimate tribe of readers who are passionate (slightly unstable) and will support you through your entire career.
In Chapter 3: How to Make Your Book Look LIke a Million Dollars (on a Ten Cent Buget) we show you some ninja tricks for formatting, editing, and getting a kick-ass book cover that'll make your self published book look like it rolled off the Simon and Schuster assembly line.
In Chapter 4: The 7 Deadly Sins of Kindle Publishing (and How to Avoid Them), we go over all the things you absolutely gotta do when uploading and publishing your manuscript to the Amazon Kindle self publishing platform. (And most of them, you've never heard of.)
In Chapter 5: The Strange, Mysterious (and Super Important) World of Amazon Book Reviews...we show you how to get actual reviews from living humans (who aren't related to) in a way that will boost your sales and put you that much closer to quitting that stupid day job.
In Chapter 6: The Ultimate Guide to a Kick-Ass Book Launch...we break down a simple pre-launch process that will have you primed for maximum Kindle sales awesomeness.
In Chapter 7: How to Crush it on Launch Day...we go over a few simple tweaks that can make the difference between becoming a Kindle bestseller or simply just another wannabe writer who wants to write full time.
And in Chapter 8: Infinity...and Beyond!...we talk about how you can parlay all this delicious Kindle publishing awesomeness into a lucrative (if you want) career being a speaker, consultant, expert...or whatever the heck you want to do.
I have sincerely put everything I know about Kindle publishing into this book. My hope is it helps you accomplish, what I've been able to accomplish.
Quit my stupid cubicle job and write...full time.
Good luck with your Kindle publishing exploits!
