Over a decade ago, print-on-demand technology was still new to the publishing world. Ebooks were available but without e-readers, no one really cared. Back then, books that “just weren’t right” for traditional publishers often ended up in a drawer somewhere. Now, low-cost opportunities for self-publishers are everywhere!
And yet, most self-published books average about 100-200 copies sold.
My colleague Angela Render and I want to help people learn to self-publish their books right. While there’s no one set-in-stone, step-by-step plan that everyone must follow, there is a mentality, a set of tools and skills, and an understanding of the industry necessary to get beyond those 100-200 friends-and-family sales.
There are opportunities available to the big publishers that are simply not available to you. But there are also opportunities available to you that big publishers can’t, or don’t, take advantage of.
Learning to recognize and take advantage of these opportunities instead of wasting time and money on those activities best suited to large publishers can be the difference between success and heartbreak. And that’s just one of the many things Angela and I want to teach you to do.
We’ve combine our expertise and experience to create the Self-Publishing Success Intensive. In one intense, info-packed, enjoyable day, we will give you so much information you’ll be returning to your notes and handouts for years.
Whether you’re a professional looking to establish yourself as a published expert or a novelist frustrated by traditional publishing routes, we can help.
We’re going to share with you all the tips, secrets, and ideas we’ve learned from our clients and our own work ushering books from manuscript to readers. We’ll tell you what you need to know to make better decisions and achieve your publishing goals. Just check out the website for details.
I found the SPSI very valuable, especially the accompanying tools and literature. If you plan to self-publish, or have already done so and want to enhance your marketing and digital platform I strongly recommend attending this seminar.—Lynn Mann, author of mystery, suspense, and short fiction
I will be spending quite a while processing all you gave me [at the SPSI last weekend]. I never could have researched all that information. You two have saved me years of work!—John Wallman, author of horror/fantasy novels
Because we want to make this experience as personalized as possible, we’ve opted for a smaller, more intimate event focused very specifically on self-publishing instead of a general writing conference. Seating is extremely limited. If you know what you want and are willing invest in your dreams, register today before seats sell out! Can’t wait to see you there!
