How to make book Publishing profitable Happytweeting 9 10 daysSusanDay (1096): @Happytweeting Hi, it's great to meet you. @KathrynLang has hit the nail on the head in the above post. I am an author of 16 books and marketing them is so much more difficult that writing them. Any groups which can help you, as @Winsome1 suggests are great. One of the things that has kept me going for seven years now is learning how to blog to my audience, and building great sales funnels on my website.

Indiana Jones of the Church Is Here markziese 11 13 daysphilipwatling (79): Nice to meet you, Mark. One dream of mine was to become an archaeologist... Strictly one residing in an armchair these days! My mother's father had a sister who married an American after (I guess?) WWII. They had two kids, one of whom now lives in San Diego. The other? Well, her and her mum live in Eugene! I have been there once, but it has featured in my book, Flight of a Lifetime :)

Joint Ventures Can Help Book Launches Winsome1 9 1 monthWinsome1 (298): I have experienced the same thing. I don't do reciprocal partnerships anymore. If you are interested in mine and have the audience to promote, I will work with you. If you come to me and it looks like something my audience can use, I will work with you. I will say, that I am pretty careful these days. In my group program, we are talking about list exhaustion. The problem with JV's is that we can get more focused on selling than providing good...

Determining Best Prices for Product Offers Winsome1 5 2 monthsSusanDay (1096): @Winsome1 This is a great question, that we have all wrestled with at some time or another. @Belew certainly has the best approach!
Are You A Thought Leader Or An Expert? Winsome1 11 2 monthsphilipwatling (79): Which community do I serve? My book was written for everybody. Sure I initially wrote it for those poor souls trying to come to terms with their own head injuries. This grew to include all hospital admissions, then onto people who suffered medical trauma and then onto simply trauma? Divorce even? Why not, it's traumatic! Ultimately my book is a true story of my life, my death and my resurrection, which will inspire people and give them hope -...
Personal Blog on Asperger's Syndrome Themeissenman 12 2 monthsIwiyisi (19): @Themeissenman I think it's better to click on the profile name(iwiyisi at the top, then have a look at the profiles).
The Meissen Man Blog Themeissenman 1 2 monthsThemeissenman (31): is so named as I am an authority on antique Meissen Porcelain. Seven years ago I began a tremendous fight with the Meissen Manufactory who wanted me to hand back my domain to them, The irony was that my site was an information resource for anyone who had interest is collecting buying and selling but no items could be bought or sold. It was a not for profit venture and I fought hand and nail to hang on to the name. At around...

The Broken Dreams of Authors Winsome1 13 4 monthsRev (4048): My first book helped make me known. My subsequent books helped make me money. @Winsome1, great set of questions but only with reference to the publishing process. Nothing about marketing. And marketing is the key!

What Is An Author Platform and Why Do I Need Winsome1 6 4 monthsWinsome1 (298): That is an interesting question. I think you are referring in part to artists vs starving artists. Fiction writers are in this situation frequently. Although, the Internet provides them with more creative ways to engage and build a following than ever before. I mostly work with non-fiction authors. Most of them are writing books to establish themselves as experts. The reasons they are not successful run the gamut from inconsistent messaging to...
A Book is Just A Book Without A Platform Winsome1 9 4 monthsBelew (10249): @Rev My friend got her break more than 10 years ago. All of us are much smarter now than we were 10 years ago. If somebody handed me $200k and said leave it to us 10 years ago I would have left it to them.
