If you are interested in this book, I presume you have written a book or plan to write one, and are thinking of self-publishing it. If so, this is the place to start. If you self-publish a non-fiction book of interest to a defined target market, or a book of fiction for people who read the genre you have produced, you can begin to promote it to interested readers. I have sold close to 10,000 books. So while I'm no E.L. James (author of the originally self-published 50 Shades of Grey), I am a happy and profitable self-published author. Perhaps you can become one too. Having said that, your desire to self-publish may not be all about book sales. You may be looking to write a book to give to family and friends. You may be looking to gain the credibility that publishing a book gives a speaker or workshop leader. You may have other reasons for publishing your book. No matter your reason, this book will answer many of your self-publishing questions, point you in the right direction and get you started. In short, as the title says, this book will help you produce, price and promote your self-published book.

The Well fed Self publisher

As this is written, together, the two books – about 50,000 copies in print – had earned him a full-time living for over five years.

Landing a publisher has never been harder. So many want to get published, but few understand the enormous challenges, the fierce competition, and the merciless reality of bookstore shelf. But, what if you are one of the lucky ones to land a publisher? Well, here's what you can count on: anemic royalty rates, 18 to 24 months to publication, and giving up the rights to your book. And guess what? You'll still be expected to do most of the marketing yourself! There's a better way. Thanks to the Internet, self-publishing has become easier, more viable, and more potentially lucrative than ever before. In 2000, veteran commercial freelancer Peter Bowerman self-published The Well-Fed Writer (an award winning Book-of-the-Month Club selection) and in 2005, he did the same with its companion, TWFW: Back For Seconds (triple-award-finalist). The books became “standards” in the lucrative field of commercial freelancing: writing for businesses, large and small, and for hourly rates of $60-125+ or more. As this is written, together, the two books – about 50,000 copies in print – had earned him a full-time living for over five years. The definition of a full-time living (straight from the horse's mouth): Okay, we're not talking “picking-out-chateaux-in-the-South-of-France” kind of money, but the book paid all my bills (including a couple of print runs each year), allowed me to stay the course in funding my retirement account, stay completely out of debt, and take a few nice vacations each year. Would that work for you? The Well-Fed Self-Publisher is a 300-page, detailed, step-by-step blueprint that explains exactly how the author did what he did. According to Bowerman, “This book is for those who really want to turn their passionate creative efforts into real 'pay-the-mortgage' money.” Acknowledging that “self-publishing” carries an enormous amount of negative baggage (and deservedly so), the author says the focus of the book is to dramatically raise the bar on quality, for starters: I'll show you how to create a book indistinguishable in quality from one produced by a reputable publishing company; how to do a far better job of marketing and promoting that book than a publisher ever could; and how to make far more money than you ever would with that publisher. And by doing it all yourself, you control the timetable (potentially shaving 12 to 18 months off production). Plus, you retain all the rights, allowing you to leverage the brand you've created into a host of profitable “spinoff” businesses – each with its own income stream. Starting from perhaps not-so-obvious fundamentals (“Write a book people will want to read”), the book progresses through a discussion of the significant limitations of the conventional publishing model (despite the best intentions of most publishers). Then, in a nod to the outright panic and terror most “creatives” experience at the mere mention of the term “sales and marketing,” the book provides an entire early chapter to help demystify these often daunting concepts. As Bowerman is quick to point out, “Success as a self-publisher is far more a function of a process than an aptitude. It's far less about some way you have to be than it is about a bunch of things you have to do.” At that point, the book kicks into gear, offering up discussing in-depth discussions of book production, distribution, marketing, promotion, publicity (through one's own web site, the Internet, radio, article writing, bookstores and far beyond), Amazon, spinoff businesses, and an entire chapter on the controversial so-called “revolution” known as “POD publishing” (print-on-demand). The book finishes with five appendices offering up resources and a time line for the self-publisher, a primer on foreign rights, and more. Dan Poynter, author and self-publisher of more than 120 books, including the perennial classic, The Self-Publishing Manual, and the self-publishing industry's original pioneer, said this about TWFSP: “From helping creative types develop a 'marketing mindset' to all the nitty-gritty administrative details. From Internet marketing, promotion, and distribution, to building multiple streams of income. This comprehensive reference covers all the bases, and does it with humor and a personal touch. Use it to move past the 'process' to the profits of self-publishing.”

This 2009 version of the book is the last version available. For partial updates, please visit Aaron Shepard's Publishing Page. Please note also that this book describes Amazon publishing BEFORE the introduction of Kindle books, which are discussed in later books of Aaron's. There has never been a self publishing manual like this. "Aiming at Amazon" is NOT about getting your book into bookstores. Instead, it lays out an innovative approach that targets sales on Amazon.com. It reveals how to make a book sell well online, with tips never before offered. And it shows you how Amazon REALLY works -- not how self-proclaimed experts wish it did! You will learn -- Why Amazon sales offer your best chance of success in self publishing. -- Why letting Amazon order books directly from you is the least profitable approach. -- How to make your book most visible on Amazon. -- How to make your cover image most prominent. -- How to optimize content on Amazon's page for your book. -- How to increase Customer Reviews without violating Amazon's terms and conditions, as well as professional ethics. -- Why many Amazon marketing techniques highly recommended by other authors are nearly useless. -- Why it takes a full year for Amazon sales of your book to reach their peak. -- Where to go on Amazon to get the help you need. Avoid publishing plans that handicap you almost before you begin, and marketing plans that waste your time and money. Let "Aiming at Amazon" introduce you to the NEW business of self publishing. ////////////////////////////////////////////////// Aaron Shepard is a foremost proponent of the new business of profitable self publishing through print on demand, which he has practiced and helped develop since 1998. Unlike most authorities on self publishing, he makes the bulk of his living from his self-published books -- not from consulting, speaking, freelance writing, or selling publishing services. In a parallel life, Aaron is an award-winning children's author with numerous books from publishers large and small. ////////////////////////////////////////////////// "Aaron Shepard has been more successful selling through Amazon than any other self publisher I know. If you want to self publish and get the most from it, this book is for you." -- Morris Rosenthal, author, "Print-on-Demand Book Publishing" "Solid gold advice. . . . Aiming At Amazon will dramatically increase your odds of success. A few hours with this book will give you the benefit of years worth of hard-earned experience." -- Steve Weber, author, "The Home-Based Bookstore" "If you want to learn how to sell more books on Amazon, this is the best book I've read on the subject. . . . Thanks to books like this, self-published authors have a chance to succeed against traditionally-published competitors." -- Stacie Vander Pol, author, "Top Self Publishing Firms" "Shepard is considered one of the pioneers of marketing print-on-demand (POD) books through Amazon. . . . I highly recommend Aiming At Amazon to self-publishers and authors who want to publish a book at little cost. The model pioneered by Shepard, Rosenthal, and others is probably the best way for a newcomer to enter the world of self-publishing." -- Peter Hupalo, Midwest Book Review
