The first thing you should know about me is I'm not a writer, and I'm not an expert on self-publishing either. I never worked in the industry, and I don't have any experience working for the big publishers. In fact, the only thing I consider myself an expert in is how to sell on eBay, Amazon, and Fiverr... So why should you listen to me? Like most indie authors, I came into publishing through the back door. I had a story to tell, and one day I just sat down and let it all come out. What I wrote wasn't pretty, or polished...but, it helped a lot of people sell more stuff on eBay. What I couldn't say with fancy prose, I made up for with enthusiasm. Because of that, my books sold. I'm not going to lie to you. It wasn't easy. I read just about every book available on self-publishing. I studied up on KDP Free days, Countdown Deals, price pulsing...

Writing and publishing your book is just the start of a wonderful journey to become a bestselling author... Almost weekly, authors call me asking something like, "Dr. Larry, can you help me market and sell my books? I have 10 cases of books in storage and don't know how to promote and publicize them." In talking with them, I usually discover they didn't know at the beginning of their book writing and publishing venture, that they didn't have a business plan for writing, editing, producing, printing, publishing, distributing, marketing, and selling their book. Unfortunately, it's almost impossible to implement a successful marketing and sales plan after the fact. So, the purpose of this book is very specific and simple. Every book project, all publishing ventures, need a business plan that identifies the people, processes, products involved with timelines, costs, goals, and objectives. That business plan includes the marketing and sales strategies needed to put the published material in the hands of as many readers, listeners, viewers, and followers as possible. -Dr. Larry Keefauver This book will answer these questions and more... - How do I successfully write to the market? - What plan is needed for effectively writing, producing, marketing, selling, and publishing my books and message? - How do I build the right team to help me write, edit, produce, and market myself and my message to the world? - Who can coach, mentor, and equip me to be a writer, author, speaker, coach, consultant, and build an online platform and market for my books, courses, webinars, podcasts, social media presence, streaming videos, etc.? "Dr. Larry Keefauver is truly an exceptional person. Larry is an international speaker and teacher; he is also a bestselling author. But Larry is more than a master writer, he is a messenger of God's word, a marvelous motivator, and an outstanding mentor especially for new authors like me. His creative new book, Becoming a Bestselling Author: 21 Proven, Profitable Pointers for Marketing and Selling You & Your Message is a must read for all authors both experienced and new. This is the work of one of, if not the best, author coaches in America. -Dr. Dennis C. Golden, President Emeritus Fontbonne University Dr. Larry Keefauver is an author/writer coach, having written 15 bestselling books and series having published over 60 books in 11 languages with over 2 million copies in print. Ghostwriter and editor for dozens of church and business leaders worldwide, Dr. Keefauver and his wife, Judi, reside in Maui and enjoy family times with their married children and seven wonderful grandchildren.
