Can you make money self-publishing a book? If your name is Steven King, Yes. Patrick Mahomes should self-publish a book right now. I’ be happy to ghost-write it for him. I know where to get him the highest royalties available for a POD publishing deal. For the rest of us there is only one answer. Website Visitors.
This week I was turned down by a snobby (lots of snobby people in books … English degrees and all that. (Yes, NO RESPECT for it) book affiliate program by Noseintheairbooks. (I made that up.) They know who they are.
Then another situation in which I wrote a query letter to try to get some freelance work writing for a pretty well-known publication. I had forgotten how troublesome it is to try to communicate with people in a power situation. I won’t be doing any freelance writing.
WordPress Dot Com
Then I read last night on my back office dashboard where WordPress has decided the classic editor app[appointed like a word processor needs to become the Block Editor i.e. Gutenberg. This is switching over June 1, 2020, when they retire the Classic Editor.
I wish I could take a hairbrush to them. We need as online business people another idiotic menu-driven conundrum along with Google making my life easy by remembering all my passwords and then forgetting to remember them for me, then having a security cow because they think in internet not normal human being pathways. Cookie head as I call him blew up my G mail Emails which are attached to my affiliate programs and it took me a month to straighten all that out.
Now I call them GOOFBALL and they can deal with it.
Should Be Amazon
Then a couple weeks ago I asked hey do you have an affiliate link? No. You see with an affiliate link authors could sell all the books in the bookstore and earn a living and that business would be 100 times the size it is.
Books are all about website attraction in our day. Mediocre books are flying off the shelves like hotcakes as they say. Many great books are not successful because the author of them does not know how to promote him or herself on the worldwide web.
But the machine cogs have books on the brain. Even trying to get people to write sex stuff because sex sells. Do not think that will sell with the one who truly matters. Not my problem.
Straight Shooter As Usual
If you want to promote a book, you need a website, PERIOD. You need to own your own domain. I own 2: sellingyourbookonline.com and genuinearticlex7.com. I actually own a couple more, but I’m not pursuing those sites any longer.
I am soon beginning publication of an E zine and a YouTube channel to provide information in the information age for those who have writing goals and want to sell books, also musicians who want to sell records, also video makers who want to sell or share videos, also artists who want to sell their art and pod casters and anyone else with something to promote.
