The Framework of Self-Publishing

 

In this short book you’ll get the framework on how to create, publish and release your book. You’ll learn the basics of what you need prepared in order to self-publish. You may be reading this book because you’re already set on self-publishing your book, you may be writing your book with the idea that you will search out a publisher but you are curious about self-publishing. Lastly, you may just have an idea of a book in your heart that you want to share with others and would like to know where to start.

 

We’ll be covering each of these areas above here and also give you the confidence and clarity to take ideas you have and self-publish your book rather than going to a traditional publisher that requires your manuscript to get approved for them to publish your work.

 

[]Self-Publishing

Self-Publishing is defined as, to publish (a piece of one’s work) independently and at one’s own expense. The biggest myth about self-publishing is that it’s low quality. They only reason a self-published book would be a lower quality would be lack of skills in packaging the book.

 

[]4 important areas of Self-Publishing

There are 3 important areas of self-publishing to be aware of that will help increase the quality of your book.

 

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Book Cover – The book cover should be professionally designed, so the front and back cover look as if it could be sitting on the shelf of a major retailer.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Content – The content inside the book should be in a logical and organized layout, should have no spelling errors and proper grammar.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Formatting – The book formatting allows for ease of reading, a book poorly formatted is difficult on the eyes or can be awkward to read.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Release – Plan out a 30 – 60 day strategy prior to your book launch. Your book launch is the day it is available for purchase.

 

You may consider the physical size of your book prior to the completion of your book, but it’s perfectly acceptable to write out the content of your book then determine the size of your book based on the number of pages.

 

[]Book Size

A book that is 15,000 words and six inches by 9 inches in dimension will be thicker than a book that is 15,000 words and 8 and a half inches by eleven inches. When using Author2Market.com to publish your books On Demand you’ve got full control of the size of your book and your own preference.

 

The recommended order in which you determine the size of your book it to first finalize all the content that will be included. After you’ve got the written content of your book completed you will want to explore the size of your book and estimate what size your book may be, this will determine the dimensions of your book cover and how the book will be formatted.

“Courage is the willingness to act in spite of fear.”

― Michael Hyatt

Finding A Publisher vs. Self-Publishing

 

Finding a publisher can be a difficult task if you’ve never published a book before. In this section you’ll learn what’s involved with finding and getting getting a traditional publishing house.

 

First time authors are not attractive to publishers. Regardless how great you think your book idea may be, they are looking for a track record or an audience. Publishers that sign deals and give an cash advance are very selective. Most authors looking for a publisher are hoping for a big cash advance, however unless you’ve got an audience, platform and following where they see some potential of selling some books…it’s a long shot.

 

Publishers that offer an “advance” usually are giving you the book profits in advance in exchange for the leverage of your audience and the expectations of selling books. To the best of my knowledge I’ll give you an example of how it works. The book publisher agrees to publish your book after you are approved. They decide to give you a cash advance toward the sale of books. The publishing house gets the majority of all the profit from the book sales until the advance is paid off. After that you get a royalty per book sale. The publishing house normally assigns a book publishing agent to you that will book interviews and help get publicity. The greatest benefit to a publisher is that they do uncover opportunities with business groups that purchase bulk orders of your book, however there is nothing stopping you from finding these opportunities yourself. These are all opportunities to allow you to sell books.

 

[]The search

After you have finished writing the entire manuscript for your book, you’ve got to sell your book idea to a publisher if you expect to get a cash advance. Publishing houses get hundreds of book manuscripts submitted to them on a weekly basis. I’ve heard of people waiting 12 months or longer to hear back if they are willing to accept your book. Most people get dozens or denial letters before getting accepted by a publisher. Sorry, we can’t accept your manuscript. Sorry, your book is not a fit for our publisher. Sorry, we don’t think you’re book will sell. I’m not saying this process is good or bad, it’s just the reality of trying to get an advance and signed by a publisher.

 

The exception to the rule is if someone suddenly becomes a celebrity or gains a large audience and the publisher sees potential to sell a lot of books. Again, it has to do with your audience…not the book idea, book cover, book title or manuscript. The more books they estimate they can sell to your audience, they bigger the potential of your cash advance.

 

I’ve personally met a few people that have landed a seven figure book advance. These were people every time, without exception, men and women that have a following. Michael Hyatt that wrote the fantastic book titled, “Platform: Get noticed in a noisy world”, calls it your platform, and if you’re starting out I recommend that book to stand out in the crowd and build up your audience.

 

One last thing to consider is self-publishing one of your books and gaining some traction and building an audience around your first book is attractive for a publisher to give you an advance to re-publish your book, or advance your next book. I have a good friend who did exactly that and is on his second book signed with his publisher.

 

 

[]Self-Publishing

If you’re going to sell your idea to a publisher why not go out and sell it yourself. Twelve months is a long time to sit and wait. In the military we would call this “hurry up and wait”. You’re in a hurry to finish and polish your manuscript, then hurry and submit it to the publisher just to wait and find out they will give you only a $5000 advance as an example. You could learn some basic marketing strategies and earn over $5000 in your first year and collect your own advance. Sure a five thousand dollar advance would be nice, but it’s hardly enough for most people to live on. The illusion and ignorance of the entire process in my opinion is that you write a manuscript and get signed by a big publisher and everyone lives happily ever after. In my experience is that is not usually true. As the late Stephen Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People says, “Start with the end in mind”. Decide what you’d like the result of your publishing experience to look like.

 

After your book gets published, with an arrangement with a publishing house or you if you self-publish the work begins 30 to 60 days prior to your book launch release day. Book launch is the pre-determined day that your book will be released and available for sale. The reality is that the work really doesn’t stop after your book is launched…it’s just beginning. If I’m the first person telling you this, you now have a better idea of what to expect.

 

If you’ve heard this before, you may be searching for an easier way to shortcut the process. The fact is that the book you are creating is a product, and someone needs to sell that product. The publishing houses that offers an advance won’t sell your book for you, they just assist in putting your book in a position to be sold or give you publicity to sell it yourself. Again, one of the greatest benefits is the relationships they may have already established to sell your book in bulk.

 

 

 

[]Quality

One common myth of self-publishing is that it’s poor quality. This is because people try to design, format and package the book without the skills to do so. The result is the book looks like it’s done by an ameture. Your book should look like it could sit on the shelf of a major retailer or book store. You may need to invest money in hiring someone to design your cover, formatting, editing and more. If you are doing this, be sure you’ve thought through exactly what you want and give examples of what you like and dislike in order to save time and money in the process. If you are not a professional designer and you try and design your own book cover, in most cases it will be obvious. People judge a book by it’s cover, and the cover should represent the value of your book content.

 

 

[]Selling your book without a publisher

The best way to sell a book is to pre-sell it, build up anticipation and an expectation for it’s release date. The movie industry is great at this. When a new movie comes out you see all the trailers for related movies to that audience. If you’re watching a comedy they show a bunch of comedy movie trailers for movies coming out next Summer. This builds anticipation for the movie about to come out. Notice how the trailers are shown to a similar audience. Kids movies show preview movie trailers for new kids movies, horror movies show trailers for new horror movies.

 

Imagine if a kids movie showed a series of horror movie trailers. It would terrify the kids and upset the parents. Even if the parents like horror movies, it’s poor timing. Consider finding groups of people that your book would appeal to and look for ways you can you build anticipation there for your book.

[][

**]Print On Demand

On Demand means there is a request that is fulfilled when the user wants and needs it. When the fax machine was commonly used there was a service called fax-on-demand where someone could request a report on the phone to be delivered by fax and they would get an incoming fax.

 

When television stations started getting thousands of channels to choose from people didn’t want to wait until a certain time for their movie to come on so services like video-on-demand and movies-on-demand came on to the scene. We have seen Tivo and other devices help support this as a way to give us the programming we want, when we want it. Now we have high speed internet as a part of our life Roku and Netflix allows us to watch movies via the internet on our terms. On Demand.

 

We now live in an On Demand culture. There are many printers out there that can publish on demand, but Author2Market.com is one company I’ve found to give you the author complete control of your self-publishing process. You need one book, they print it. If you need 50 book next month because you want to host a book signing, just order it. If 50 people register for the event and you need 25 more books, just log in to Author2Market.com and place the order. If you have in your mind images of being required order 1000 books to sit in your garage until you sell them all because of large minimum book orders put that thought aside. The only minimum order at Author2Market.com is one book. You can literally print each book when you need it. On Demand.

 

The printing at Author 2 Market is major publishing house quality, while they also offer stellar customer support. If you need to speak with someone about your order, they are available to help.

[]Notes

Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.

― Eleanor Roosevelt

Where to start with your book

 

[]Your first task is to identify your Target reader, sometimes referred to target market or avatar. This will help you great better messaging with your marketing if you understand their needs and wants.

 

My company has a process we’ve put together to help busy people who have ideas for a book but very little time to sit and write or those who are not naturally a “writer” to author their ideas. Any time I’m coaching someone on building the content of their book, we always start with the target reader. If you are writing a non-fiction book keep the ideal reader in mind, if you are writing a fiction mystery novel, keep the ideal reader in mind too. Ultimately you are providing either education, information or entertainment for your reader. The more you connect with the benefit to the reader, the more appealing your book will be to them.

 

Many people I speak with have an idea or concept for a book but, don’t know where to start. I find it works best to ask yourself “who would benefit from this idea”. All business starts with making someone’s life better, that’s what it’s all about. You can make someone’s life better by providing a solution in their life, or allowing them to escape their everyday life into your story with entertainment.

 

[]What is your Golden Thread

Writing a story and delivering a message is like speaking a message. I had the honor of being a part of Toastmasters last year here in Tempe, Arizona and got some mentorship from someone in that group who is also an author, pastor and friend, Dr. Gene James. He has been a guest on my show where I promote authors with ideas that make an impact and he has a great book, Let’s Talk Man to Man, on marriage and family relationships. With Gene’s help I won third place in one contest and first place in a another theme related contest. The biggest lesson I learned from Gene was to get really clear about the core message you are getting across to the listener. Some speakers call this the “Golden Thread”. What is that message that is threaded through your whole talk?

 

The same is true with your writing. Get really clear on the message you want to deliver to the reader and identify what your golden thread is or the emotion you want them to experience after your reader is finished with your book. The Golden Thread should be the sentence or two someone would say to a friend immediately after reading your book, if someone was to ask “what was that book about?”.

 

[]Find a market

You can’t saturate and idea in the marketplace because people and ideas are always changing. Most people don’t want to just write a book for the sake of writing it, they want to sell books, inspire people, share a transformational message with someone. I would encourage you to do some research and look into books similar to yours, with a similar message, with a similar reader. One common myth is that you have to write a book that is different that everything else out there, this is not necessarily true. Your message will be unique because it’s coming from you. It’s better to write a book in an existing popular genre rather than trying to create your own genre.

 

 

[]What’s the benefit

Clearly identify what the benefit is to the reader. The main benefit of this short book is to give you the confidence to author your next book, and education on the difference between self-publishing and searching out a publisher. Hopefully you feel that we’ve achieved that by this point. Your next book doesn’t have to be perfect, you just have to get started. If you don’t have the skills to design a book cover, reach out to book cover designers and ask questions. If you don’t know how write but have a great idea, ask questions and do research.

 

Seth Godin says when you’ve got a product that can really help people it’s important to set a date, and SHIP IT. Even if it’s not perfect, if your message connects with people you can improve it. When you’ve got the benefit to the reader in mind and you help them improve their life they will look beyond any small errors in your first book that may be keeping you from shipping your book.

 

 

[]Look up reviews

I learned a great marketing tip from Jay Abraham, who I had the chance to meet with in person. This tip was as it relates to books is to look up products similar to yours on Amazon Kindle. Find a few books with lots of reviews, good and bad.

 

Read over all the lowest and most negative reviews. Find out what the readers wished they would have read in this book, find out what they want. Usually the negative reviews are a response from readers complaining about what was missing from this book about what they didn’t like. This can be a great learning experience for you. Read the positive reviews too, but you can sure learn a lot about what the readers want from the lowest ratings…and the author may just be ignoring this valuable information.

“The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.”

― Hans Hofmann

Simplify the process

 

When I’ve done marketing coaching people what I usually do is try to simplify things, because usually too many options cause confusion. Some of my clients have called me a “Clarity Coach”, helping them get a clear direction on what to do next. Any time we are confused on what to do, we usually do nothing. Coaching is all about helping people take action. In this short section I’m going to simplify the self-publishing process into three basic parts.

 

Create, Publish, and Release are the three basic parts of your self publishing process. First you create your content. Then you get your content formatted to be published and it’s ready to ship or launch to customers. Then you set a release date and launch your book.

 

[]Create

First identify your target reader, who they are, what they like. Next, get clear on your golden thread, what is the core message you want to deliver to the reader and compile your content around that. If you’ve already written your content, just review everything with these things in mind.

 

[]Publish

Prepare everything as professional as you possibly can so the book looks like it literally could sit on the shelf of a retailer. If you are not a designer have your book cover professionally designed, it’s important. Be sure your book is properly formatted so it reads well online and in printed format. Get your printing on demand all set up with a reliable printer, we recommend you use Author2Market.com.

 

[]Release

Take your book launch seriously. Schedule a date when your book will be available for purchase and build a group of people to help build anticipation for your book. Create a plan for the 30 to 60 days prior to book release, and the 30 to 60 days after your book release. Consider other events happening during this period of time and how you can tie that into your book promotion. I have a friend who was releasing his product on the same day as someone else, they had a strategy session and decided to help promote each other. They both would promote product one on the first two weeks, then the second product would be released and they would share the promotion for that launch too. Do some research to see who else may be releasing a book in the same window of time and form some strategic partnerships.

 

[]It’s your fault

My good friend Dr. Will Morland who has authored dozens of books and his newest book being, Genius Potential, encourages people to take full responsibility for where you are in life. If you don’t currently have a book published, it’s your fault. Especially today when there are so many tools like Author 2 Market to assist in getting Self-Published without having to ask a publisher for permission. If you really want to get published, go for it. Most people get to 90% completion and keep tweaking things over and over and never actually launch their project.

 

Schedule your launch date, write it in your calendar and you’ll be amazed how all the pieces start falling into place.

“Without promotion, something terrible happens… nothing”

―P. T. Barnum

Promote your book without a publisher

 

[]When you develop a simple plan for launching and marketing your book you can use social media to reach out to strategic partners and directly promote your book as well. Social media allows for not only your own promotion, but an easy way for others to share it too.

 

Since being introduced in the mid 1990’s social networking sites have revolutionized the way we do business online. With instant access to your target audience, and the ability to keep a steady pulse on what our market is currently interested in, it has never been easier to connect with potential buyers and long-term customers.

 

Social networks provide people with the opportunity to create profiles, blogs and personal pages that reflect their individuality, interests and experiences. It puts people in quick contact with old friends, or helps them make new ones. When it comes to generating new interest or exposure for your new book, social networks can help you quickly locate potential buyers, connect with authority figures, expand your outreach and even conduct niche research to determine current buying patterns, trends and overall demand.

 

There are literally hundreds of social media sites that have sprung up over the last few years. However due to the time involved with engaging and interacting within these communities while establishing credibility in your market in order to build the most effective marketing campaigns, you’ll want to focus only on the most established, active social community sites.

 

[]Facebook

Facebook became the most popular social network online in 2009 and has become a part of everyday conversation and how we keep in touch and connect with people.

 

With Facebook, you can interact with those in your market by adding them as a contact, but you can also generate exposure a number of other ways from within the Facebook community:

 

[]Create Facebook Advertising Campaigns

Facebook offers its own internal advertising center where you can set up “Adwords style” advertisements that appear whenever specific keywords are entered within the Facebook community. You can customize your Facebook ads so that they become visible only to potential customers based on gender, age, or even location. With Facebook advertising, you can pay per click (CPC) or impression (CPM), and can schedule your ads to run for a specific time or on an ongoing basis.

 

 

[]Create Facebook Fan Pages

A free (and effective) method of generating exposure and building a reputation within your niche market is by creating a Facebook fan page. A fan page is similar to creating a new Facebook profile, where you can add notes, messages, download links, and images to your fan page, while managing your fan pages all directly from within your main Facebook account.

 

One of the greatest benefits of building fan pages is that you can provide potential customers and leads with free samples or downloads of your products, or you can build a list by featuring an opt-in box directly on your Fan page.

 

[]Twitter

Twitter took the online business arena by storm when it quickly grew in popularity attracting millions of users who can choose to ‘follow’ updates from those they are interested in. Twitter offers a flexible API system that allows third party developers to create Twitter plugins and applications that enhance their accounts overall functionality.

 

There are a variety of tools and apps where you can set up automatic greeting messages that thank those who follow you for becoming a contact, while being able to promote a squeeze page, incentive offer or gift of some kind. A squeeze page is where you offer something of value in exchange for their email address, so you can send follow up communication to them.

 

This is a great way to quickly build a list in your niche market, while establishing a relationship with those who choose to follow your updates and public timeline. With Twitter, you can quickly build a profile that features your website URL and photo, while integrating keywords within your bio field to attract visitors to your page whenever similar keywords are entered in Twitter’s built in search engine.

 

One thing to keep in mind when using Twitter as a marketing channel is that the more interactive you are, the more exposure you’ll receive. Every post you submit through your Twitter account will go out to everyone who follows you. In addition, your posts will be archived within your main profile page so that new followers can browse through previous updates.

 

Twitter is an incredibly useful tool when conducting niche research or testing the viability of a market. From newspapers to television stations, Twitter has become an easy way to post instant news and alerts, and as an online entrepreneur, you can utilize this information to determine what your target market is consistently responding to and interested in by following those who are established within your market or industry and keeping an eye on their current broadcasts and launch announcements. If you’d like some tips on how I grew my Twitter following from a little over a thousand to over 12,500 in just a few months so I can help promote books for my community, just let me know.

 

[]Using Social Networking Websites to Promote Your Books

Online social networking websites give internet users an easy and fairly safe way to come together. Many social networking websites are designed to make it easier for you to search for and make contact with other people online, especially those that you have something in common with.

 

As previously mentioned, social networking websites can benefit all website owners, but especially those who are looking to promote their books, products and programs. If you have a website that selling products or services, you may find it a little bit easier to use social networking sites to your advantage. This is because, if you wish, you could do product or service spotlights. Each day, week, or month, you could showcase one of the products or services that your website sells. This could either be done right on your profile page or on a blog page, which is provided by most social networking websites.

 

If you have a blog you can write short article similar to the ideas in your book, or something the reader would enjoy then share those blog posts on social media. This is a great way to gain new readers for your blog, and the blog will contain sections that promote your book.

 

[]Using your blog to promote your book

Promote your book with your blog? Why would you want to do that? The whole purpose of a blog is to provide new, fresh pieces of content to a particular niche or industry. You can use the blog to post free articles of value, then when they get to the blog they see your book for sale. A good friend of mine had a short book for sale for $2.99 on his blog, and by posting short articles and a blog outreach strategy that I teach a similar strategy in my book “Client Bait”, he sold over 65,000 copies in about 8 months. If you’d like more info on that strategy send an email to me at [email protected]

 

When it comes to promoting blogs, there are many blog owners who decide to let the search engine do the work for them. Search engines, such as Google, Yahoo, and MSN use a special technique that reads the content on your website. That content is then used to rank your website with particular keywords. This means that you run a blog on graduating from high school in New York, there is a good chance that your blog will appear in searches done on New York high schools. Although many blogs are successfully ranked in search engines, not all are. That is why you are advised against relying solely on search engines, when it comes to promoting your blog.

 

As previously mentioned, if you love meeting with or talking to people online, there is a good chance that you belong to a social networking website or community. The individuals that you talk to and that are in your community are likely the individuals that you wish to target. Since most social networking websites work to connect internet users who have the same goals and common interests, there is a good chance that your online friends will enjoy reading your blog.

 

When it comes to promoting your blog on social networking websites, you have a number of different options. Your first option is to include a link to your blog in your community profile or profile page. This will allow other community members to checkout your blog, only if they wish to do so. The other way is to inform your online friends of your blog through private messages.

 

As you can easily see, there are a number of different ways that you can go about promoting your blog on online social networking websites. You never known, but, in addition to promoting your blog, you may also make new friends along the way.

 

So there you have it, the top social community sites where you can quickly build an online platform and generate massive exposure for your new book. Spend some time creating your social networking accounts and post frequent updates to retain your following base and establish contacts and leads through your broadcasts and interaction.
