But being that my friend has never led me wrong, I checked out this book and decided to buy it. I was not disappointed. I read this book through once fairly quickly, absorbing the nuggets of gold that are available. As I write this review, I am working through the book a second time, going slower and making notes as I go. This is definitely a book worth two reads for anyone who is having trouble getting their book or books noticed. This wonderful guide taught me so many things that I just never considered before, and some I'm already implementing towards my own book.
For anyone and everyone who is struggling with getting attention on their book after dedicating hours and hours to its creation, do yourself a big favor and get this guide, read it and apply what it teaches you. You won't be led wrong.
Fortunately, that is where author Kim Staflund steps in, with her guide How To Publish A Bestselling Book ... and Sell It WORLDWIDE Based on Value, Not Price!. The most important advice she gives is that the author "must treat book publishing, sales, and marketing as [their] own business." (p.150) How many writers dream of the day when the book they've put so much time and heart into will be chosen for publication by one of the big houses, making them the next overnight sensation? Reality is far more sobering, and while Staflund pulls away the rose-colored glasses, she spares readers from depression by offering alternatives and ones that, while requiring elbow grease, may even be better.
A multiple self-published author, Staflund is eminently qualified to share her experience and her knowledge in the self-publishing industry. While many aim for the trade houses and sneer at self-publishing, Staflund found herself opening her own supportive self-publishing house, Polished Publishing Group (PPG). Trade publishing and supportive self-publishing are just two of the three options she describes to her readers (the third being vanity self-publishing), and it is immediately clear that the route taken by the author's house, supportive self-publishing, is the superior method.
Staflund uses her expertise to walk new self-publishers through the minutia of the publishing procedure, and there is a wealth of information within these pages. The details of the publication process are excellent, and as Polished Publishing Group welcomes the submissions from the readers of How To Publish A Bestselling Book, Staflund gives us an even more intimate glimpse of the quality of her own organization, and their standards. What's more valuable, however, are the tools she provides that turn this process into the author's business. A book will not sell without promotion, and Staflund brings out all the tricks she has at her disposal to share with the reader.
The best is a rendition of her schedule while she is writing a book, including how soon she began setting up book signings after she's sent the manuscript to the publisher, and when she begins planning YouTube readings, blogs, and other multimedia pages. Staflund holds nothing back, and because of that, How to Publish A Bestselling Book has the feel of a roadmap. Just follow it, and it will easily take you where you want to go. It is not difficult to believe that Staflund can deliver on the title's claim, as well.
How To Publish A Bestselling Book ... and Sell it Worldwide, Based on Value, Not Price! refers to having a better quality product as opposed to a lower price, and Staflund definitely followed her own advice in that regard. This book is a gem for authors desperate to break free from the cycle of rejection letters, and goes beyond by destigmatizing the supportive self-publishing industry, and providing detailed instruction to authors on how to make it work for the reader.
This book is an amazing, comprehensive - yet truly simplified and readable guide to self-publishing. I highly recommend How to Publish a Bestselling Book ... and Sell It WORLDWIDE Based on Value, Not Price! for everyone out there who is wading through the big mysterious world of self-publishing today - this guide will help you successfully charge forward and you may even become a bestseller.
Kim Staflund’s HOW TO PUBLISH A BESTSELLING BOOK…AND SELL IT WORLDWIDE BASED ON VALUE, NOT PRICE!, is an invaluable resource for new and seasoned self-published authors. All facets of writing, publishing, and marketing are covered in this book through the voice of a publisher and entrepreneur, which gives Staflund’s book more credibility and value than many other guides on the market today. If one doesn’t view his or her book as a business venture, the author is sure to miss much success that could have been found with the proper instruction.
With a background in trade publishing, a large backlist of self-published books, success as the founder of Polished Publishing Group (PPG), and a #1 bestselling author—Staflund is a preeminent coach in the business for anyone looking to publish a professional product with success. Publishing is an “emotional process,” Staflund writes. “Authors’ emotions and insecurities can get the best of them through this process, and it can make them second-guess their own decisions all along the way.” However, Staflund does an incredible job to illustrate how authors can detach themselves from the emotional side of their book to really sell it like a smart-minded entrepreneur.
This guide is a great resource for authors the world over, a staple for publishers and authors alike.
