How Can My Self-Published Book Be Successful?

As an author who doesn’t want to go through the hassle of finding a traditional publisher or literary agent, and waiting months on months for my book to get released, the question I see the most is “Are self-published books successful?” There‘s no denying that selfpublishing has become a more viable option for writers in recent years, and we’ve seen success stories from rising authors Amanda Hocking years ago to Elise Kova today.

With advances in technology and the rise of platforms like Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing, Barnes and Noble Press, Ingram Spark, and LuLu, it‘s easier than ever for writers to get their work out there.

But just because it‘s easier to self-publish doesn‘t mean that it‘s automatically going to be a success.

There are a lot of factors that go into making a successful self-published book, including things like marketing, quality of writing, and more.

One of the most important factors in having a successful selfpublished book is marketing.

Just because you‘ve written a great book doesn‘t mean that people are automatically going to find out about it and start reading it. You need to put in the work to promote your book, whether that means setting up a website, doing social media marketing, or even just sending out review copies to bloggers and book reviewers.

In addition to marketing, the quality of your writing is also important. If you want people to keep reading your book, you need to make sure that it‘s wellwritten and engaging.

This means proofreading carefully, writing in a clear and concise style, and making sure your book has a strong plot and believable characters.

There are a lot of other factors that can go into making a selfpublished book successful, but these are some of the most important. If you can get the marketing and writing right, you‘re well on your way to having a hit book on your hands.

If you’re having trouble in either of those areas, you can pick up my newly released guidebook for writing called Work In Progress on Amazon. It comes with helpful plot and worldbuilding questions, surveys, tips, and tricks.
