This is a burning question with A LOT of moving parts: how much does self publishing cost? It all comes down to your time versus money ratio and your skill set. Self-publishing itself doesn’t cost anything…meaning Amazon and most other platforms don’t charge you anything to publish and list your book on their sites. However, if you choose to outsource any part of the process, you can expect to invest. Unless you are some sort of enigma that can do it all from writing to graphic design, you’re going to need help. Self-publishing requires an array of special skills and if you don’t have those sk ..read more

Let’s face it, your cover is probably not the worst book cover in history. There are plenty of places to find that online. You can still get your book cover all wrong, even if it looks right. That’s why it’s important to not DIY your book covers. I’ve done it. You’ve probably done it. We’ve all done it to save a little money. The problem is people will judge a book by its cover…EVERY TIME. I’m very much a proponent of doing things yourself. That’s why it’s called SELF-publishing, but covers are one of the most affordable aspects of the process to outsource and you should let the pros handle it ..read more

What do a few different flavors of Pringles have in common with your cover design? Maybe nothing, and that’s part of the problem! What can make your series fail on KDP? When you have one-off publications, you’re at a greater disadvantage. Stay with me. Authors who have a deep backlog, it’s like Pringles, once you pop, you can’t stop, right? When you have more content, readers have more to consume. They’re going to come back again and again. A series is easier to market. You can start by marketing the first book in the series.

Can you still make money publishing on Kindle? The short answer is “yes,” but the long one is “Yes, but you can make a lot more if you take things beyond just publishing on Kindle.” Have I Made Money Publishing on Kindle? Around 2013, I threw my hat into the self-publishing ring just to give it a whirl. I never imagined the amount of success I’d realize. I couldn’t even fathom the amount of time, energy, and effort I had to put into making it work. Sure, I can support my family on my earnings and still have money to spare. Yes, I’m afforded a little more attention now than if I would’ve stayed ..read more

by Ava Fails

I’m going to tell you exactly why most KDP authors don’t sell books or start losing book sales. Yeah. Book covers. Book covers don’t come easy. Some authors would rather make their own covers than worry about figuring out how to hire a professional. They’ll spend countless hours and even months putting together something they think is passable. Why? Sometimes it’s creative control. They figure they wrote the book, edited it, proofread it, and plan to market and promote it, so why would they outsource cover design? They’re already doing everything else. Here’s why…because you are not a profess ..read more
