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.

In Westerns, the Myth is Everything Silverscreen59 3 12 daysSilverscreen59 (4): The myth is what keeps westerns alive. As John Ford put it in The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance..."When the legend becomes fact, print the legend."
Western Film Historian Silverscreen59 6 12 daysSilverscreen59 (4): Howdy, Rev. I have interviewed many of the stars of Gunsmoke and have become very good friends with a couple, Buck Taylor & head writer Paul Savage (now deceased). They shared some very fascinating and eye opening stories about the cast and show itself.
Gottogo history. Can you guys help me out Gottogo17 6 14 daysFreedomSeekers (4): @Gottogo17 If I may; your company vision is helping others by giving back something they need... Like transportation. Your services will provide rides to people on off hours when there's no bus service to and from work. The name of your company is quite unusual, and highly affected if you marketing it in the right Metro areas. So my question to you is how are you planning on branding your vision. What things do you have in place to...

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...
Size Matters..Your List and Book Launch Winsome1 8 2 monthsSusanDay (1096): @Winsome1 I offer a free ebook called "Help! My Grandkids Don't Like Reading!" 7 ways to engage and develop a love of books and reading. It's early days, the site is only a few months old. I have over 100 blog posts, and this week I've started reaching out to write guest spots on baby boomer sites and other authors I know.

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 -...
Change your life, change the world. philipwatling 5 2 monthsphilipwatling (79): Chuck, you hit the nail on the head. My experiences are my experiences. I never try and preach to people telling them to follow me. They must learn to go there own way - I just give them an example. My book is inspirational, so I have often been told, because I went to a certain type of hell and found my own way out, but mine is not the only path! Laurence, thank you for your kind words and for saying that you will help spread the word. I am a...

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.
