Successful Self-Publishing: How to self-publish and market your book in ebook and print (Books for Writers 1)
Do you want to successfully self-publish?

There are thousands of new books being published every day, but many self-published books quickly sink to the bottom of the pile.

Many authors are frustrated because there are so many options for self-publishing, and they don't know which one to choose or what will be best for their book.

Others spend thousands of dollars to publish and end up broken-hearted with the result.

But it doesn't have to be this way.

I've spent the last seven years self-publishing bestselling fiction and non-fiction books and in 2011, I left my day job to become a full-time author entrepreneur. I've made lots of mistakes along the way, but through the process of self-publishing 17 books, I've learned the most effective way to publish and market your books. In this book, I'll share everything with you.

The book includes:
- What you need to know before you self-publish
- Why self-publishing an ebook is a good idea
- How to format an ebook
- Exclusivity and going direct
- How to self-publish an ebook
- Why self-publish a print book

Why Authors Fail: 17 Mistakes Self Publishing Authors Make That Sabotage Their Success (And How To Fix Them)

Could A Hidden Mistake Be Sabotaging Your Self Publishing Success As An Author?


Becoming a massively successful self-published author isn't easy. Even just one missing link in an otherwise perfect plan can kill your results.

The easiest way to avoid these mistakes is to learn from those who have made the mistakes for you, found a way to overcome them, and can take you by the hand to show you the principles you need to follow to guarantee long-term success.

Can Anyone Become A Successful Author?


I was once a broke valet parker and struggling writer. Through years of study, experimentation, and a lot of mistakes, I eventually cracked the code to becoming a multiple #1 bestselling author.

My own experience combined with coaching students from all over the world has revealed the hidden mistakes most authors don't even realize they're making.

I hate seeing passionate authors missing out on their chance for success simply because no one took the time to share these insights.

I wanted to write the book I wish I had when I first started my journey of self-publishing that would have saved me endless headaches and frustration.

What All Authors Must Know


This is not strictly a book on marketing strategies, how to write a better book, or a technical guide to self-publishing. Instead, this book gives you what you really need to succeed - the real world principles all successful authors follow.

Inside you'll discover...


• Why struggling authors sabotage any chance of success before they write a single word… and how to virtually guarantee you’ll have a bestselling book, before you even begin.

• Why struggling authors spend countless hours and hundreds of dollars publishing their dream book, only to find it gets lost among all the other self-published “wannabe” books… and how you can make sure your book stands out from the competition.

• Why struggling authors can have the best written book on a topic... but still fail to make it a best selling book.

• Why struggling authors often never get their book or series finished… and how you hack your motivation and creative inspiration to get your book done fast.

• Why struggling authors’ creativity can be what leads to their failure… and how you can combine one simple thing with creativity to give you an edge no one else has.

• Why struggling self publishing authors turn off potential readers before they’ve even had a chance to read their book… and how you can utilize simple psychological tactics that practically force browsers to purchase your book.

• Why struggling authors can’t create a long-term business… and how you can set things up from the start to ensure you’re thriving off of book sales for years to come.

You can either unknowingly make these mistakes and wonder why you're not seeing the results you want as an author, or you can learn from a #1 best selling author and publishing coach saving yourself countless hours and headaches.

After getting your copy of "Why Authors Fail," you'll never again have to worry you don't know what it takes to become the successful author you were meant to be.

“If failure is not on your author's checklist then this book is a must read! A powerful, business-saving wealth of knowledge for the serious, result driven author. Derek cuts to the chase and gives you the real meat to help you avoid errors across the board, take your work to the next level and ultimately reach your success goals." - Vivian Jokotade of Jokotade.com
