Self Publishing: The Secret Guide To Becoming A Best Seller is a work of non-fiction focused on the world of writing and independent publishing, penned by author Richard McCartney. Focused specifically on the marketing aspect and the visibility of your book to the reading public, this concise but effective guide takes on the biggest giant of the publishing world for indie authors: the mighty Amazon. In an in-depth study of how Amazon works, and more importantly how to make it work for you, the author unveils many lesser-known tactics for new authors to navigate the murky waters of adverts and algorithms for great results.
Author Richard McCartney writes in an accessible style that will help even the newest self-published authors to understand the mechanics of how Amazon marketing campaigns work, lifting the lid and explaining in simple terms how such a complex system can be made to work in your favor. The narrative style is also friendly and positive, with a ‘you can do it too’ attitude that is sure to leave budding authors feeling inspired, and perhaps veteran self-publishers with a sense of ‘finally, this is what I needed to know’. The organization of chapters and sections makes it really easy to find aspects that you’re looking for and return to key advice later for reference. The book is presented with professionalism and clarity throughout, which adds to the feel of confidence and inspiration that everyone will get from reading Self Publishing: The Secret Guide To Becoming A Best Seller.
