Sobre o livro
Are Your Ready to Quit Your Job and Make a Living As An Author?
I was offered my first book deal before the age of 30. I was over the moon! I had a literary agent, and one of the top publishers in the country; when the book was published, there were even mega-production studios calling my agent to inquire about the rights.
It’s what every author dreams of, right?!
Kind of. Sort of. No!
It used to be. But that was several years ago. That was before the birth of the first real game-changer since Gutenberg's press: the Amazon Kindle.
The Kindle itself didn’t rock the industry to its core - rather, it was the self-publishing platform that came with it: Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP)
Authors could always self-publish, but prior to KDP, it was something you did when no publisher would take a chance on you. After KDP, authors were proving that for the price of $0, you could have your book published not only electronically, but in print as well. In a very short time, authors started using KDP and becoming millionaires!
I started using KDP (as well as other publishing distribution channels) way back when it first opened its doors, and I haven’t looked back. I’ve launched several imprints and have sold over 2,000,000 books. In this book, I’ll show you how I, and other authors, have done it.
A word of caution: this isn’t a how-to publish a book on KDP; if you need a step-by-step on how to navigate through the KDP dashboard, then there are other books that cover that (but seriously, publishing through KDP is ridiculously easy!). This book is to help you launch your book and attract more readers.
