In 2013, Johnny B. Truant and Sean Platt published 1.5 million words and made their full-time livings as indie authors. In Write. Publish. Repeat., they tell you how exactly how they did it: how they created over 15 independent franchises across 50+ published works, how they turned their art into a logical, sustainable business, and how any independent author can do the same to build a sustainable, profitable career with their writing. Write. Publish. Repeat. explains the current self-publishing landscape and covers the truths and myths about what it means to be an indie author now and in the foreseeable future. It explains how to create books your readers will love and will want to return to again and again. Write. Publish. Repeat. details expert methods for building story worlds, characters, and plots, understanding your market (right down to your ideal reader), using the best tools possible to capture your draft, and explains proven best practices for editing. The book also discusses covers, titles, formatting, pricing, and publishing to multiple platforms, plus a bit on getting your books into print (and why that might not be a good idea!). But most importantly, Write. Publish. Repeat. details the psychology-driven marketing plan that Sean and Johnny built to shape their stories into "products" that readers couldn't help but be drawn into -- thus almost automatically generating sales -- and explores ways that smart, business-minded writers can do the same to future-proof their careers. This book is not a formula with an easy path to follow. It is a guidebook that will help you build a successful indie publishing career, no matter what type of writer you are ... so long as you're the type who's willing to do the work.

Read this if you want to sell more books, make more money as an author, or rank higher in your category. My name is Nick Vulich. 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...

This is not another book about book marketing - this book is about the things that are actually critical to your success as an author. Trying to become a successful author by only concentrating on marketing is like trying to become a body-builder by only doing bicep curls with your left arm. The fundamental principles that will take you from zero to making a good living have nothing to do with money or luck or your lack of 3 million fans on Facebook. These principles applied before social media existed, and will continue to be the foundation of authors' success long after the current crop of social platforms have faded into history. This book will teach you these underlying principles. It will show you how to sift through the noise and misinformation online and learn what every successful modern author knows---becoming a successful author is not as hard as you think.

The top-to-bottom guide to taking your writing and publishing business from "Square One" to "Stratosphere." Iterate and Optimize is a behind-the-scenes peek into how indie publishing company Sterling & Stone grew their three-author team into juggernaut -- and a next-level guide for authors looking to explode their sales and do the same. In Write. Publish. Repeat., bestselling authors Johnny B. Truant, Sean Platt, and David Wright explained how to build a thriving international publishing empire with no luck required. Rather than resting on their laurels in the years since WPR was written, they've been evolving their once-fledgling business a little bit at a time: expanding to eight publishing imprints, ten high-profile podcasts, a coordinated staff working behind the scenes, millions of words published and hundreds of thousands of books in the hands of eager readers. In Iterate and Optimize, they show you how they grew their business from the ground up in tiny, incremental steps -- and give you a road map so that you can do it, too. More than "just another self-publishing guide," this book delves deep into the business behind the success of Platt, Truant, and Wright's company Sterling & Stone, making it the essential "advanced course" follow up to Write. Publish. Repeat. It explains how to tweak your processes over time while maintaining momentum, wringing more profit out of assets you already have. You'll learn how to diversify and create more products with less work, generate more money doing what you already do now, and set yourself up so you can build a readership who will support you in the specific ways you intend to evolve. You'll learn how to grow from a bare-bones, minimum-viable-product business into a slightly larger business or an outright empire -- not with massive, flashy (and risky) moves, but by the sustainable magic of incremental growth: small improvements made consistently over time. In this book, Platt, Truant, and Wright give you all the nitty-gritty they've learned and implemented since their last nonfiction publishing bestseller. You'll learn how to "iterate and optimize" the way you handle: - Exclusive versus "going wide" distribution - International and multi-format sales - Advertising and marketing - Optimizing book covers, descriptions, and metadata to increase conversion - Slowly and sustainable building your assistants or contractors, plus outsourcing right - Advanced product funnels, including the changed role of free books - Networking and in-person meet-ups - Workflow management and systems - The writing and pre-writing process so you can "write better faster" - Social media - Podcasting - Crowdfunding - what works and what doesn't - And much more

The unique focus of this text integrates constructivist learning, diversity, and instruction-based assessment, and helps translate principles into practice. The central, underlying thesis of Teaching Language and Literacy is that children are at the center of all good language and literacy teaching. The text, with broad coverage of preschool through the elementary grades, advocates an appreciation of student diversity and an implementation of assessment strategies relating to specific learning/teaching events. The text describes how children construct their own knowledge about oral and written language by engaging in integrated, meaningful, and functional activities with other people in a variety of contexts. It then goes one step further, describing how teachers can design authentic classroom reasons for using oral and written language. In keeping with the text's theme, illustrations of how teachers can work effectively with diverse learners appear throughout the text. In addition, instructionally-linked assessment is another important topic central to the text.
