Publisher's Summary

Demystifying the tangled web of self-publishing to put you on the road to success.

This is a motivational guide based on my 2.5 million published words (mostly with Amazon) to help you see past the hurdles that are keeping you from climbing the mountain of success. Nothing is overwhelming once it's been explained. If you are smart enough to write a book, you are smart enough to do everything else needed to make your indie author business a success.

This guide has something for every budding author as well as those who have already published but for whom success remains elusive. In this business, there is only one hard-and-fast rule - you must find readers willing to pay for your stories. It starts with the first sentence. You have to write a gripping story that people want to read, wrap a cover around the book, and then do the marketing. There’s no doubt that you can do it. Let me show you how.

For more than Indies

Wow. This is one of the best books on writing I have ever read. It goes beyond just Indie publishing. Traditional authors would benefit from Craig’s insights too! So many lightbulbs went off, and at this point, I’ve written ten books. Highly recommend. Move over Stephen King’s “On Writing.” (Just kidding—every writing teacher has something different to offer that is valuable to different people)

Wow, practical, educational, & accessible.

Craig has yet to disappoint. Each book I've experienced of his has been engaging & full flavored. This one covered far more than I would have thought & it's that sort of nitty gritty detail stuff I think I'll want to reference as I move forward. I highly recommend the book & this author.

I've Now purchased the whole series!

Very useful book, lots of great advice and words of motivation. Some of the tax section wasn't relevant to me as I'm a UK based author, but I have Joanna Penn's books that cover that, and some of the general US tax advice was still very useful. I'll be listening to this multiple times for sure.
