Meghan Pinson (meghanpinson) Just wanted to let you all know about a book I worked on this summer: What Kind of Loser Indie Publishes, and How Can I Be One, Too?


The author, Pamela Fagan Hutchins, has indie published five narrative nonfiction books and two (almost three) novels in the past two years, and they're actually turning a profit. This book is her tell-all how-to for indie-publishing authors.

Full disclosure: I've edited and critiqued all of those books for Pamela. I'm really excited about this one because it answers all the questions my indie clients ask me. If you're thinking of self-publishing your book, read this first -- it's full of specific, practical advice about every part of the business.

- Should you do e-books or paperbacks?
- How can you get hard copies into bookstores?
- How should you publish your e-book: Kindle, Kobo, Nook, iBook?
- Is KDP Select worth it?
- How can you connect with readers?
- How important are Amazon reviews, and why? How many do you need before your sales start taking off?

I've seen excellent books gather dust because their authors don't know how to sell them. Do your homework, invest wisely, and get your books into the hands of readers who will love them. Take it from me: this book is worth your time and money.

Meghan Pinson (meghanpinson) Oh! It's in the subtitle of this thread, but I'll put it in my post, too. Thanks, Lin!
