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.

You need to take advantage of these differences in order to maximize your profits and discoverability.

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.

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.
