To find success in publishing, you have to think like a publisher. Many authors are disillusioned about what it really takes to produce and market a book. But, with the right tools, and the right utilization of resources, odds for success increase exponentially.
The new age of publishing is here, and savvy authors are making a killing. If you are passionate about writing, there's no reason you can't be successful as a self-published author. In the same way Malcolm Gladwell outlines traits of successful people in his Outliers: The Story of Success, author Thomas M. Hill—a copyeditor, developmental editor, proofreader, and former assistant acquisitions editor—shares the common habits of successful authors and offers practical advice based on his publishing experience. In addition to working in traditional publishing, he has served as a book shepherd to a handful of highly successful authors. The Author Toolkit profiles some of those success stories and offers practical advice on how to position yourself for success as an independent author or publisher.
In this must-have ebook, you'll learn the success principles of publishing, such as:
