Write. Publish. Repeat. (The No-Luck-Required Guide to Publishing)

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 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:

"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

An entertaining read written in a style that manages to be both entertaining and informative. There's a lot of good information here, but I can't help feel that it's mostly geared toward people who haven't found or don't have time to find the information for themselves. There are forums and groups online that will give you more or less the same information included in the book. Having never listened to the podcast, I imagine that it would be very entertaining if this book is true to the author's voice on air, so to speak. If you want a quick-read guide about what to do to try to kick off a decent indie career, this is the book for you.

3 easy steps to being an author. Write. Publish. Repeat. One of the best books on writing ever written. If you are a fan of the Self-Publishing podcast, you will be a fan of this book. There is no sugarcoating in this book. This is the real deal. It is a simple roadmap to a career as a writer. It is good for authors of both fiction or non-fiction. This book is by 3 guys who know their stuff about self-publishing and are not afraid to share it with you. Thanks to the authors for a great read.
