Are You Making The Same Costly Mistakes That Authors Usually Make? Then here is a book that helps realise your author-entrepreneur dreams WITHOUT SPENDING A DIME. From the author of 32 books and sixty translations selling over 50 countries, here comes a DIY manual of practical tips and advice that can take your writing dreams to literally publishing Nirvana. Fleecing authors has always been a multi-million dollar business from time immemorial. So how much should you be prepared to spend to create a really professional looking book? The answer is: $0. Yes, you read it correctly. You can create a professional product at ZERO cost, I repeat. I am an Indian and it is in my nature to be somewhat miserly. But Indians are also known for creating high quality, low-cost products, through sheer Jugaad, that can be loosely translated as “improvisation”. In this book, I’m willing to share all my experiences of starting frugal with you. I will explain how to start at $0, to ensure that your “business” does not financially cripple you. And then, the moment you can afford it, to incur costs selectively where they can give you the maximum bang for your buck. Is this book right for me? Please don’t read this book if you are already a best-selling multi-million dollar earning author who has no problems fishing out a cheque for any amount for that fancy book cover design. Again, please don’t read this book if you believe you don’t have the time to learn some simple skills yourself. But if you are an author, struggling to make a living but have the dreams of making it big one day at minimum cost, THIS BOOK IS CERTAINLY FOR YOU.
