Self publishing expert shares insider strategies for how to publish a book that will find a rabid, and profit-generating, audience.
San Diego, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/01/2014 -- Have you ever wanted know how to publish a book? Want to jump into the self publishing waters but not sure where to start, or how to ensure you don't waste your time on a book that won't make you money?
Michael Rogan, author of the new book "How to Publish a Book That Doesn't Suck" -- and author of 30 self-published titles -- says publishing a book that actually makes money is far simpler, and quicker, than most writers realize.
"Many writers get stuck in the technical details of self publishing," says Rogan. "Anything that you find hard or complicated you can hire somebody else to do. The only thing you have to do is write the damn book."
And once that book is finished, adds Rogan, the money can come in a variety of forms.
"As a self-published writer you aren't selling one book, you are selling your six, maybe seven, different versions of your book," says Rogan. "Whether it's audio books or print versions there are tons of different ways to find your future readers."
The key, according to Rogan, is to be bold with your messaging. ("That includes having a cover that doesn't suck and a title that stands out from the pack.") And realizing that shorter is better. ("People have zero attention span these days.")
But once writers can focus on these elements, and worry less about how to "export their manuscript into a .mobi format" the quicker they'll find that full-time writing career they've been dreaming of.
