Secrets of the Six-Figure Author Reveals a Proven Plan for Achieving Success Today

I Believe Every Author Can Become a Six-Figure Author Using These Principles for Success

If you want to live the lifestyle of your dreams as a writer and author, you must read this book! Learn how to:

Demolish Every Obstacle In Your Way and Become a Bestselling Author

Whether you're a self-published author, traditionally published or just starting out writing your first book, there are dozens of obstacles standing between you and six-figure success as an author. Wouldn't it be helpful if you knew ahead of time what those obstacles will be and how to overcome them quickly and easily?

In Secrets of the Six-Figure Author you will learn the 12 key obstacles every author must face and how to blast through them without breaking a sweat.

Riding the Wave of the Ebook Publishing Revolution

According to a recent study by Pricewaterhouse Coopers, by 2016 readers in the United States will spend more dollars on ebooks than on physical books! From 2013 to 2016, ebook sales will grow from $4 billion to over $10 billion while physical book sales will actually decrease!

If you're not taking advantage of the huge opportunity of publishing ebooks and earning a six-figure income, you're missing out! Discover how you can best position yourself for this huge wave of ebook success so that you too can become a #1 bestselling author and live the lifestyle of your dreams as one of the top authors in this new publishing environment.

Never Before Seen Strategies for Success in the Ebook Publishing World

I'm going to share with you several brand new strategies for success that work like magic for ebook authors and publishers and how you can apply them tonight and start selling more books tomorrow!

You'll learn how to become not only a bestselling author but a household name in your market, niche or genre by becoming the go-to author in your field with incredible online viral exposure and word of mouth marketing.

How To Improve Every Day and Create Long-Term Success

Can I be honest with you for a moment? Most authors never achieve the success they want in life because they let little things cheat them out of big opportunities. That's why you'll see authors today who complain about agents and publishers not responding to their queries while others are writing and publishing ebooks and making a fortune!

When you buy this Kindle book, you're going to learn how to create your Daily Method of Operation (DMO) that will guarantee you get the most out of every single day so that you can write better books faster, get published quicker and start selling a lot more ebooks quickly.

After reading Secrets of the Six-Figure Author you'll never have an excuse again as to why you can't be the next great bestselling author!

About The Author

My poetry was first published at age 16 in Teen Ink magazine and I started writing books at age 19 but had no idea how to get my message out to anyone other than my friends and family. Finally, I discovered Amazon's Kindle Publishing platform and published my first book on Kindle on February 10, 2012.

Since then, I've sold over 100,000 ebooks on Kindle and now earn a full-time income as an author. If I can do it you can too!

Learn how to become a Six-Figure Author today.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as Advertised 3 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought the Kindle publishing book then changed for this book as it seemed to encompass everything and be more up to date but I suggest to other Indoe Publishers to review this before purchasing very carefully. I found it not remotely helpful for the working author/publisher - nothing but endless prods to write every day and keep at it - no practical or actionable advice at all. Mostly it seemed like a way to regurgitate content so as to publish another book.
Worse - what may have been useful, the few clues at the back about Keywords on Kindle is useless because Google replaced the Keyword tool with the Keyword Planner - I would have thought a serious "How-TO" author would have taken the time to go in and update his content.
Sorry _ i wouldn't usually write anything non-positive but at this price I feel authors should be aware that they are not getting what they need.

5.0 out of 5 stars Phew! 16 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My inner sceptic lost out when I clicked to buy this book - I've spent so long reassuring myself that it isn't possible to earn a living as a writer except for the lucky few... However this book has turned me round and shown me how to do it. Corson-Knowles employs a firm, no-nonsense coaching style, with a fair bit of sales-speak along the way - both of which make me a bit wary. However he has lots to say about how to make a living as a writer, seizing the e-book revolution, and I am heartily impressed. One short phrase particularly spoke to me - 'Being a writer is running a business'. Not LIKE running a business, but actually running a business. Now I find that reassuring - it takes things out of the realm of mind-over-matter and into the real world of learning new skills and applying them. Definitely worth reading. One note - it's American and the figures are all in dollars and the style a bit alien for Brits like me. But the lessons apply nevertheless.

3.0 out of 5 stars it's a bit light on content 17 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read the book in literally under an hour - which is how the author intended the book to get read.

I could also summarise the book in a handful sentences:
1) if you want to be a best-selling author build habits that support this and think like one
2) focus on one audience to write books for
3) use kindle to write short books which you can produce and update quickly
4) remember that becoming a best-selling author means you have to write, publish and market your book
5) have a daily & monthly routine to support you to write, publish and market your books

Having said all that, if you are new to writing and are thinking about writing as a career, then I would really recommend this book. It's the honest kick-up the back side which you need to go for it (or not)

The best chapter for me was the one on SEO for amazon kindle. Which is ironic as this was an extract from another book.

The author advises that you focus on just one social media channel. I.e. blogging, or youtube, or podcasting, or facebook, or twitter. I disagree with him. My advice is you decide on the valuable content you will produce and decide what is the right blend of blogging vs podcast vs YouTube. Then focus on 1-2 social networking sites to distribute this content, I.e. twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook. You've got to have great content to share on social networking sites - and often it is the blog posts, or podcasts or videos which are the content you share.

This is not a book I would recommend if you want detailed help with marketing your book. I deliberated on whether to give the book 2 or 3 stars. My suggestions you seriously considering buying APE by Guy Kawaski as this does everything this book does and gives you more of the how to.

In summary, I came away with a couple of nuggets which have made it worth the cost of the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars The section on habit is fascinating. 26 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I logged on to write a review and wasn't surprised to see this book at #1 in one Amazon sales category, and highly placed in two others. Having read other work by this author, I was thrilled to receive a review copy of this book, written in his conversational, friendly prose which makes you feel as if you are having a chat with a good friend. I already use a few recommended techniques and have since implemented more. It's not just your authorship that will benefit. Tom Corson-Knowles has plenty of advice worth applying to everyday tasks in general. The section on habit is fascinating.

The title of this book may be off-putting for some, but it's not just about money, it's about making your writing work for you, on a daily basis. I love his `to do' list/diary idea.
In my opinion, the must buy for any writer, serious about writing is Stephen King's `On Writing' On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft, but this book is well worth downloading. I also like `The Kindle Publishing Bible' The Kindle Publishing Bible: How To Sell More Kindle Ebooks on Amazon (Step-by-Step Instructions On Self-Publishing And Marketing Your Books) (Kindle Bible)by Corson-Knowles, and will download `The Kindle Analytics Bible' The Amazon Analytics Bible: How To Use Analytics To Sell More Books On Amazon And Make Better Marketing Decisions (Kindle Bible).

`How To...'books in the ebook world date swiftly, but Corson-Knowles keeps you informed by regularly updating his content.
