Being a writer is not just about typing. It’s also about surviving the roller-coaster of the creative journey. Self-doubt, fear of failure, the need for validation, perfectionism, writer’s block, comparisonitis, overwhelm, and much more. When you’re going through these things, it can feel like you’re alone. But actually, they are part of the creative process, and every author goes through them too. This book collects the mindset issues that writers experience, that I have been through myself over the last ten years and that perhaps you will experience at different times on the creative journey. Each small chapter tackles a possible issue and then offers an antidote, so that you can dip in and out over time. It includes excerpts from my own personal journals as well as quotes from well-known writers. I hope it helps you on the road to becoming a successful author. The book includes: Part 1: Mindset Aspects of Creativity and Writing Self-doubt and imposter syndrome Need for validation Fear of failure Fear of rejection and criticism Your inner critic Fear of judgment Perfectionism Writer’s block and procrastination “I’m not creative. I don’t have any ideas” “My writing isn’t original” “Why write? There are too many books in the world already” “I don’t have the time or self-discipline to write” “I’m not finding writing much fun. It’s hard work.” “I keep starting things and not finishing them” Dealing with friends, family and writer’s groups “How do I find my voice?” Comparisonitis or “Everyone is better than me” Part 2: Mindset Aspects after Publishing Anti-climax and creative dissatisfaction What is your definition of success? What happens when you tell people that you’re an author? “I’m overwhelmed” Dealing with fans, authenticity and drawing the line Haters gonna hate Ambition, fame and fortune Giving up Part 3: Tips for Success on the Author Journey Know thyself Understand and hone your creative process Develop professional habits Manage professional relationships Take control of your writing career Find your community Keep learning Schedule rest and take time off Think long term.

Frustrated with the plethora of conflicting information on how to self-publish? Wouldn’t it be wonderful to sit down with someone who has already made the mistakes, done the analysis, and will provide you the short cuts—the secrets about the things that work? Now you have that chance with the Career Author Secrets series. Indie Publishing (Self Publishing) has changed dramatically in the past five years. There are now new, easier tools to use for every part of the process—editing, formatting, distribution, sales, and analysis. This boxset contains three books. Secrets Every Author Should Know: Publishing Basics It contains everything a DIY author needs to get her book from manuscript to professional publication in both ebook and print, including: * Why books don’t sell * Options for DIY or contracting professionals *The truth about ISBNs & Copyright Registration * Secrets for formatting your book the easy way * Creating book covers that sell * Making decisions about distribution Secrets to Pricing and Distribution: Ebook, Print and Direct Sales Once you have a finished book, you need to get it into readers’ hands. Loading your book to a vendor looks deceivingly easy. However, the career author knows that each vendor has its own methods for promoting books, performing searches, and identifying ready buyers. You need to take advantage of these differences in order to maximize your profits and discoverability. Capitalize on competitive retail pricing in different markets, and use effective metadata to draw more readers to your books. Learn to: * Write compelling book blurbs for each title that focus on “reader cookies” and • marketing. * Unlock keywords and get access to hidden category options. * Take advantage of search algorithm nuances at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and Apple. * Use aggregators to increase distribution opportunities around the world. * Evaluate opportunities for direct sales to bookstores and individual consumers. Secrets to Effective Author Marketing: It’s More Than ‘Buy My Book’ This book provides specific techniques to exploit the value of your books without resorting to the typical overexposure in social media and newsletters with “Buy My Book” sales messaging. Instead, focus on the top three proven techniques that actually sell books. Follow step-by-step instructions and timelines to learn how to: 1) Create an Effective Plan for Communicating to Readers; 2) Use Social Media and Email lists to Engage with Your Readers; and 3) Plan for Effective Campaigns for both Book Launches and Backlist Rejuvenation throughout the year. In addition this book provides techniques to: * Distinguish specific groups of readers most likely to buy your novel or nonfiction book. * Understand your competition and the advantages that your book offers. * Clarify hooks that capture attention of the media, reviewers, and readers. * Identify where and how to reach readers, reviewers, and media. * Create and implement a consistent brand throughout all marketing efforts. * Effectively select, from 100+ options, the appropriate marketing tactics and timing that matches your book intentions and values. * Maximize organic reach and stay to a budget of less than $100 per book campaign. * Develop a long-term online marketing plan.

One year ago I had six novels self-published that were starting to get good reviews from the people who read them. After a decade of working hard to make a career out of writing, I finally felt like I was on the cusp of success. I decided to start a journal to chronicle my journey. Whether you are an author who is thinking about self-publishing or you are simply curious about how the process works, this journal will give you insight on what it is like to try to break out in one of the hardest professions known to man. Everyone has heard about the success stories of a handful of self-published authors, but they are the exception to the rule. Even if you work hard, have talent and take advantage of every marketing and promotional opportunity that is available, the chances of making it big are astronomically low. Read my story and experience the highs, the lows, the more lows and the holy crap I didn’t think it could get any lowers of self-publishing. The journal highlights my efforts to write and self-publish four novels in less than a year. It also delves into the strategies I implemented to convince lovely folks like yourself to actually pay me money to read them. Finally, I also talk about how I got started as a writer and how the publishing industry has dramatically changed since then.
