Sample Chapters:

Chapter 5: Begin With The End In Mind

"It is very natural that people would believe that they would be successful if they can just publish a book. And while I'm a big believer in leveraging your book so you can move on to bigger things, you need to know that there is no magic in being a published author. "

-- Chapter Five


Chapter 6: Your Marketing Plan

"All marketing efforts should be planned and not just haphazard. They should have a known timeframe and a known budget. You should also have some expectation of results. How will you measure those results? Here's a starter list of items you might use. "

-- Chapter Six

Who Should Read This Book?


This book is useful for everyone who is interested in self publishing a book in the modern era - that means you'll need information that's fresh since 2011!


The modern publishing industry is moving very quickly and books that are 5 or 10 years old are irrelevant to the process of book publishing as something written 100 years ago. YOU - a brand new author - can produce an amazing book that looks professional.



The Tools Are Out There!

Literally anyone can produce a top quality book that looks and feels exactly like the books produced by the big publishing houses. First, you have to commit to producing such a book. Once you do, THIS book will show you how.

Note that this is not a little 30 page handout you can get for 99 cents on Kindle.
This is a 250 page guide to the most important things you need to know to be successful in book publishig today.


Gutenberg's press is said to have revolutionized the world of printing by bringing printing to the masses. And believe me, it was a big step to create books in large numbers with having to rely on monks to transcribe them by hand. But the digital printing press has really changed the way books are made in the 21st Century!


Now anyone can upload a file and create a book almost overnight. Whether you print one or one thousand, each is an original. The economics, the mechanics, and the technology of book production have all combined to give you publishing abilities you never had before.

And this book will show you how to get started.
