Now’s your chance to get behind a great book designed to help indie / self-published authors not only publish their work but achieve the writing career of their dreams. Written by P.J. Fox, author of the bestselling The Price of Desire and The Demon of Darkling Reach, Self-Publishing Is For Losers: The Evil Toad Press Guide to Self-Publishing cuts through all the BS that’s out there about self-publishing and tells you what you need to hear to make it as an indie author.
The unfortunate truth is that as many strides as self-publishing has made, there are still many out there who deride it as a license for mediocrity–hence the ironic title, Self-Publishing Is For Losers. That’s what traditional publishing wants you to think, whether they admit it or not. This book teaches you how to put that thinking aside and focus on building a business and career of being a professional writer.
This isn’t a technical guide on how to design your ebook in a particular file format or a primer on the step-by-step details (i.e., which button to click) of publishing a book with Kindle Direct Publishing, but rather a big picture look at the work ethic and business skills you’ll need to get your work out there and selling. Self-Publishing Is For Losers operates under the presumption that your book is polished and good, and gives you the skill set to take it from Word document to finished product.
It offers a wealth of nuts and bolts advice on business and marketing, but more importantly it also helps you identify when it’s time to step back and hire a professional. If you chose the self-publishing route affirmatively, because you believe in keeping control over your own work and taking control of your own career, this is the book for you. If you want your book to look, feel, and read like a traditionally published volume you might pick up in any Barnes & Noble, this is the book for you. If you want brutal honesty and no-nonsense advice, then you need to help us publish Self-Publishing Is For Losers–and in return, you stand to get some awesome rewards.
