Today there are thousands upon thousands of self-published authors. Most of them are invisible. Nobody knows about them or their books.
The sad truth is that writing a book is the easy part. Getting it out there, getting it seen, that's the hard part. But you've probably figured that out on your own already. You're a smart cookie.
So now you're trying to figure out how to promote your book and get the best bang for your buck. A lot of people waste their time posting links in Facebook groups.
Forget Facebook groups! There's a better way to promote your self-published book for free.
Oliver Markus Malloy is a German-American novelist and comic artist. Born and raised in Aachen, Germany, he currently lives in Los Angeles, CA.
Malloy began his writing career in the early 1990s, as editor-in-chief of a computer magazine with a monthly circulation of over 500,000, which was distributed by Germany's largest publishing house. After moving to New York, he was the art director for a newspaper in Manhattan, and later the production manager for a newspaper in Brooklyn, before he began self-publishing his cartoons online in May 2000. He has never had another 9-5 job since.
His bestselling trilogy, Bad Choices Make Good Stories, has been downloaded over 100,000 times on Amazon, Apple Books, Google Books, and Kobo.
Forget everything you think you know about writing and self-publishing. Chances are it's complete bullshit.
Nowadays there are literally hundreds of thousands of people who dream of being a professional writer. And thanks to self-publishing and print-on-demand, there's nothing stopping you or anyone else from publishing whatever you want.
Even if it's complete crap.
The result? Every year, millions of shitty books get self-published. Books that should have never been published in the first place, because they are so bad, nobody wants to read them.
While you're reading this little book, one of two things is likely gonna happen: Either you totally hate this book, because you feel what I'm saying is stepping on your toes and you may feel personally attacked. Or you wholeheartedly agree with this book, because you're one of the few good indie authors who actually have talent.
But even if you hate every word I say, you probably should take the time to read this book anyway, because you'll learn a few very important things. I promise to keep it short.
Oliver moves from New York to Florida. Battling with depression, he gets sucked into the seedy underworld of Fort Myers, where he encounters a number of female drug addicts. He empathizes with them because of his own traumatic past. Oliver feels compelled to try to help them escape the addict lifestyle, but learns the hard way that he is in way over his head.
"A truly fascinating and unexpected look at the darker side of addiction."
