Write Publish Repeat Book Excerpt:

In 2013, Johnny B. Truant and Sean Platt published 1.5 million words and made their full-time livings as indie authors. In Write. Publish. Repeat., they tell you how exactly how they did it: how they created over 15 independent franchises across 50+ published works, how they turned their art into a logical, sustainable business, and how any independent author can do the same to build a sustainable, profitable career with their writing. Write. Publish. Repeat. explains the current self-publishing landscape and covers the truths and myths about what it means to be an indie author now and in the foreseeable future. It explains how to create books your readers will love and will want to return to again and again. Write. Publish. Repeat. details expert methods for building story worlds, characters, and plots, understanding your market (right down to your ideal reader), using the best tools possible to capture your draft, and explains proven best practices for editing. The book also discusses covers, titles, formatting, pricing, and publishing to multiple platforms, plus a bit on getting your books into print (and why that might not be a good idea!). But most importantly, Write. Publish. Repeat. details the psychology-driven marketing plan that Sean and Johnny built to shape their stories into "products" that readers couldn't help but be drawn into -- thus almost automatically generating sales -- and explores ways that smart, business-minded writers can do the same to future-proof their careers. This book is not a formula with an easy path to follow. It is a guidebook that will help you build a successful indie publishing career, no matter what type of writer you are ... so long as you're the type who's willing to do the work.

What Indie Authors and Thought Leaders Are Saying: "Two of the best in the biz... A gem for aspiring authors." -- Hugh Howey "I have a pretty popular blog on self-publishing, and I've written a couple of books on the topic myself - meaning I've read a lot on the topic and come across lots of different strategies and approaches to building a loyal audience. For my money, this is the best book on self-publishing out there." -- David Gaughran "It's tough to find more honest and straight-forward marketing advice than what you'll get from these indie authors." -- Jane Friedman, former publisher of Writer's Digest "The most important book on self-publishing I've ever read. " -- Karol Gajda "Consider it the most valuable guide book to publishing success." -- Jim Kukral, Author Marketing Club You'll Wish You Could Have Read it Years Ago!

The Introvert s Guide to Entrepreneurship Book Excerpt:

How an Introverted Entrepreneur Accidentally Discovered the Critical Effect of His Personality on His Business If you are an introvert wishing to start a business, I can’t think of a worse way to mess it up than to completely disregard the effect of your personality on its success. In fact, that’s exactly how I messed up my business. I launched a venture suited for an extrovert, not even once asking myself whether I could handle it with my deeply introverted nature. Would you like to avoid a major screw-up and start a business that fits your personality? Don’t reply. I know your answer. I wrote this book to help you avoid the mistakes I made and teach you the proper way to start a business as an introvert. I will share with you the lessons and observations every introverted businessperson should consider before pursuing a new venture.

Even with the most genius business idea and perfect execution, you can fail when exhibiting one of these weaknesses. (Chapter 2) - how to lead your company as an introvert.

Just one of these traits can either make or break your partnership. (Chapter 4) - how to promote yourself and network as an introvert. Most introverts possess a powerful skill that can help them promote their business without networking the old-school, extrovert-friendly way.

Iterate and Optimize Book Excerpt:

The top-to-bottom guide to taking your writing and publishing business from "Square One" to "Stratosphere." Iterate and Optimize is a behind-the-scenes peek into how indie publishing company Sterling & Stone grew their three-author team into juggernaut -- and a next-level guide for authors looking to explode their sales and do the same. In Write. Publish. Repeat., bestselling authors Johnny B. Truant, Sean Platt, and David Wright explained how to build a thriving international publishing empire with no luck required. Rather than resting on their laurels in the years since WPR was written, they've been evolving their once-fledgling business a little bit at a time: expanding to eight publishing imprints, ten high-profile podcasts, a coordinated staff working behind the scenes, millions of words published and hundreds of thousands of books in the hands of eager readers. In Iterate and Optimize, they show you how they grew their business from the ground up in tiny, incremental steps -- and give you a road map so that you can do it, too. More than "just another self-publishing guide," this book delves deep into the business behind the success of Platt, Truant, and Wright's company Sterling & Stone, making it the essential "advanced course" follow up to Write. Publish. Repeat. It explains how to tweak your processes over time while maintaining momentum, wringing more profit out of assets you already have. You'll learn how to diversify and create more products with less work, generate more money doing what you already do now, and set yourself up so you can build a readership who will support you in the specific ways you intend to evolve. You'll learn how to grow from a bare-bones, minimum-viable-product business into a slightly larger business or an outright empire -- not with massive, flashy (and risky) moves, but by the sustainable magic of incremental growth: small improvements made consistently over time. In this book, Platt, Truant, and Wright give you all the nitty-gritty they've learned and implemented since their last nonfiction publishing bestseller. You'll learn how to "iterate and optimize" the way you handle: - Exclusive versus "going wide" distribution - International and multi-format sales - Advertising and marketing - Optimizing book covers, descriptions, and metadata to increase conversion - Slowly and sustainable building your assistants or contractors, plus outsourcing right - Advanced product funnels, including the changed role of free books - Networking and in-person meet-ups - Workflow management and systems - The writing and pre-writing process so you can "write better faster" - Social media - Podcasting - Crowdfunding - what works and what doesn't - And much more
