Ready to publish your novel, turn readers into raving fans and earn a living from your stories?
It’s a simple system that is easy to follow and proven to get results.
Self Publishing 101 will teach you how to:
- Format your books and get great covers so that they are indistinguishable from your traditionally published rivals.
- Upload your books to all the major platforms.
- Understand metadata so that your books show up in searches.
- Find your perfect readers and add them to your mailing list.
- Build an automation sequence that introduces new readers to your writing, and encourages them to move on to your paid books.
- Craft straightforward and simple to learn Facebook Ad campaigns that work, require minimal maintenance, and won’t leave you broke.
- Turn your readers into fans, and then into superfans (and members of your crack Street Team).
I can show you how to get your work into the hands of readers.
