Indie Writer Unboxed

Free sample

So. You've self-published.

You've written some books, but they're not selling as well as you hoped.

Or maybe you sold well in the beginning but your sales have slipped and you don't know what to do. You've tried advertising, but you don't think you're very good at it. Or maybe your books just suck. Or maybe the algorithms hate you, or it's because some troll gave you a one-star review.

At any rate, you're struggling.

You're too busy doing stuff that probably doesn't matter, but you can't see what or how to cut.

This book is for you!

Indie Writer Unboxed follows four hypothetical writers from the same online writing community on their journey, with challenges they face and steps they take to overcome them.

As reader with some self-publishing experience, you're sure to find something in common with one of them: Tom, the semi-retired chemist who looks after his ill wife, Jack, who has lots of small dabbles at many different things, including having sold some books to a traditional press, Emily, who writes lots and lots of books but feels burnt out, and Lucy, a stay-at-home mother with a husband who really doesn't "get" her desire to write.

This is not a how-to book, and it's not a book that shows you how to (or claims that you will surely) make squillions. It's a book about the range of realities that the vast majority of writers will find themselves in after the initial glow of publishing has worn off.

It's a book about how to adapt, how to change your mindset, and how to be happy.

You intend to self-publish or have published a book or two. You’re not selling very well and wonder why not. You feel you should be doing something, but the thought of “marketing” gives you nightmares. 

You don’t want to become one of these people shouting “Buy My Book!” on Twitter. 

But you would still love to start selling some books, and pay some or even all of your bills with your writing income. 

The good news is that this is ever more possible when self-publishing, if you set yourself up right. 

This is where the three-year plan comes in. 

The Three Year, No-Bestseller Plan For Making a Sustainable Living From Your Fiction has been a popular forum and blog post on the subject of career and audience building vs chasing sales and rankings of individual books. 

People have long asked me if I’m going to turn the post into a book. The post itself is about 1500 words long, but it covers only an overview of the strategy and is intended for people who are already familiar with many of the tactics discussed. There is much I could add and explain in more detail. 

Enter the books! 

Self-publishing Unboxed is a 101 guide to self-publishing and selling your self-published books, and it will show you: 

--The basics of self-publishing 
--How to optimise your book’s listings 
--How to decide which services to use (and how to pick scams!) 
--How to decide what you need to spend your time on besides writing 
--Easy and cheap ways to promote 
--And much more 

It is ideal for people who are at the beginning of their publishing career, as well as those who have dabbled a bit, but are ready to take it seriously.
