In this week’s episode, we discuss the process of self-publishing a series that had previously been traditionally published with NYT, USA Today, and Amazon bestselling author Jennifer Ashley.
Jennifer didn’t just decide to continue her Stormwalker series, she also made the decision to invest in the continuation of audiobooks for her series, hiring the same narrator her publisher had selected to narrate the books originally.
In today’s episode, we take close look at the process romance author, Jami Albright uses to keep her books tickling the Amazon algorithms, staying near the top of the sales charts, and generating around $5,000 in royalties each month. Jami manages all of this despite the fact that she’s published only two books, both in the last year.
My guest today is Michael Anderle. This is Michael’s fourth visit to the show, and his first visit, Zero to $10k Per Month in 90 days is still the most popular Author Biz episode of all time, not counting the thousands of times the video of that show has been seen on YouTube.
November 3rd, marks the two year point from Michael’s first published book, and in those two years, he’s gone from being an indie author to a successful indie author to a really successful indie author and now he’s a successful indie publisher, whose company, LMBPN publishing is currently publishing over a dozen books and a half dozen audiobooks each month.
More authors are participating in anthologies than ever before. Author and anthology editor/producer Patrice Fitzgerald joins us this week to discuss best practices for anthologies, whether you’re a participant or a producer.
Honorée Corder joins the show to discuss the launch process she used for her latest work, YOU MUST WRITE A BOOK. Then we get into her strategies for managing advance reader teams, choosing the right public relations firm, time management and even the importance of having a set of professionally done author photos.
Christopher Lombardo has had his books published multiple ways and shares his experience doing his own public relations for the books he’s indie published and had published through small presses.
