New Author Quick Start Guide

Are you new(er) to writing or self-publishing? Check out these things 25 authors wished they knew before publishing (sadly not me because I got busy/distracted/whatever and didn't turn mine in on time).

My advice was going to be:

“Get feedback on your work before you self-publish. Whether it be from a critique partner, a paid editor, a trusted friend who can be brutally honest (my best asset), or a contest judge, don’t go to market cold. I’m glad there are no more gatekeepers deciding who and what gets published now, but I’m grateful for having gone through the traditional submission process and contest circuit before I decided to self-publish because it made me a better writer.”

Anyway, there are lots of other great tips in the The New Author Quick Start Guide from the folks over at Infostack.io.

Who's that? Well, last year, Infostack.io created a massive bundle of self-publishing tools and resources that included ebooks, courses, writing software, and discounts on cover design and editing, and more.

All of these products were offered at a ridiculously discounted price and it was their most popular bundle of 2018.

But don't worry if you missed out, because now it's coming back better than ever! (Partly because I'm in it. LOL, mostly kidding, but hey, everyone's the hero of their own story, right…?) Anyhoo, Write Publish Profit 2.0 is here next week, loaded with tools to help you take your writing and self-publishing to the next level!

The New Author Quick Start Guide is an introduction to some of the experts involved in Write Publish Profit 2.0.

Inside, you’ll find best practices and advice for new authors from 25 professional writers, authors, and publishers.

When you download it, you’ll be added to the waiting list to be one of the first people to get access to over $4,000 worth of ebooks, courses (including one of mine!), software and other resources for 98% off the retail price when Write Publish Profit 2.0 becomes available.

Don't miss out! Get The New Author Quick Start Guide free today.

I hope you find it useful! If so, feel free to share this with all the writers in your life.

Scrivener webinar at Mark Dawson’s Self Publishing University

I’m giving a Scrivener webinar for Mark Dawson’s Self Publishing Formula University (SPFU) on Wednesday, May 15th. You can join the fun for just $1 US by signing up to Mark’s Patreon account at the $1/week level (no long-term commitment required).

Patreon supporters get membership of SPFU (with five quality webinars so far in the library), exclusive contents, a shoutout on the podcast, and depending on level, an SPF pin, all PDFs and handouts mentioned in podcasts, and chances to win access to premium courses.

If you’re not familiar with Mark Dawson, he’s the man behind the popular Self Publishing Show podcast, and the author of bestselling thrillers, who generously gives of his time and knowledge to help indie authors succeed. In fact, his series on Amazon ads a couple of years ago gave me the confidence I needed to wade into advertising my books.

I hope you’ll join me for the webinar! Also, look for me on an upcoming episode of the Self Publishing Show.

See you there!
