    Using BookBub for Book Promotion...

    RANT 
    This is more of a rant, but if you want to comment on your BookBub experience, please do so. I've had TMF featured in BookBub once a few years back as a "loss leader" to find new readers. Then I tried to get Unscripted featured three times, and despite hundreds of reviews, continue to get...

    Supa's Novel Writing & Self-Publishing Progress

    EXECUTION 
    Hey everybody! This first post in this progress thread won't be super exciting, as I'm currently in the planning phase of a series of novels and there's not much to write about that. I decided a while ago to write a novel. I know, I know, who doesn't right? That's one of the main reasons I...

    Regarding Language used in Self-Publishing

    I've been sitting on the idea of creating a publishing house explicitly so I'm able to protect my literary work. Both present and future. Although my primary and only focus is on my freelance work that could turn into a full-scale business, I've found that I enjoy writing on my "down time" so...

    MARKETING

    How to Use Book Marketing to Grow Your Business (a Less Common But Powerful Strategy)

    GOLD! MARKETING 
    As a businessperson, you might think that writing books is for artists or those “do what you love” daydreamers fooling themselves they can turn their little hobby into a business. And nothing could be further from the truth. Have you ever heard about Keller Williams Realty? They’re one of the...

    Writing my first Non Fiction eBook

    EXECUTION 
    Hey all, After silently reading in this forum for a couple of months, I feel it is time for my own Execution Thread. So here I go. ABOUT ME I went the typical slow lane so far. Went to university, got a marketing degree, did a traineeship (ridiculous pay) and stayed with the same company...

    Results...Finally!

    EXECUTION 
    Back in late 2010, I threw my hat into the writing/self-publishing ring. A friend had used a self-publishing service to get his first book into print, and it seemed like a good idea to test out. Needless to say, I knew nothing about marketing books or marketing anything at the time. I made many...

    Hello! from a location-independent self-publisher. My journey so far

    INTRO 
    Hello! First off, I'm happy to be a part of this awesome community! I just realized I suck at introducing myself, so I will try to keep it short. Originally from Poland, born in 1990. I've been into the self-publishing business since 2014. I took it seriously from the very beginning and...

    Uncommon Publishing Results Require Uncommon Action

    PUBLISHING 
    I am a product marketing guy, but book launching and marketing is different. Many of the tricks of the trade that are used in physical product marketing don't apply to book marketing, and many successful strategies for book publication don't apply to the physical products industries. I tasked...
