"You won't make any money from self-publishing."


The internet has revolutionized every business it has come into contact with, and publishing is no different.

For the first time, these changes are handing power back to the writer. It's up to YOU if you want to profit from them.

Let's Get Digital: How To Self-Publish, And Why You Should (Updated 2nd Edition)

The award-winning, bestselling self-publishing guide has been re-released as a new updated and expanded 2nd edition, with 75,000 words of essays, articles, and how-to guides, as well as contributions from 30 bestselling indie authors including J Carson Black, Bob Mayer, Debora Geary, Mark Edwards, and many more.

It covers everything from how the disruptive power of the internet has changed the publishing business forever to the opportunities this has created for writers. It gives you practical, hands-on advice, sharing the very latest best practices on editing, cover design, formatting, and pricing. It gives you proven marketing strategies that won’t eat into your writing time and are actually effective at selling books. It also shares tips on platform building, blogging, and social networking, and explains which approaches are best for selling fiction versus non-fiction, and what writers should really focus on.

This new updated 2nd edition now has more options for those on a tighter budget, teaches you how to get your book into print (and why that helps selling e-books), tells you why you should start a mailing list immediately, and shares the pros and cons of going exclusive with Amazon. And that’s just for starters…

    This is my second try at self-publishing. The last time was about ten years ago. I had opted for POD with, you guessed it, one of those bloodsucking predatory outfits out there. I found out who they were in David Gaughran's book. It was a non-fiction book and I had not even identified those I was writing for properly. The venture was a monumental flop. I had wasted precious time, a fair amount of money...and (almost) my resolve. David Gaughran's “Let's Get Digital” got me back on the straight and narrow. His no nonsense, no fluff, straight down to brass tacks approach gave me the confidence I needed to try again. It worked. I sold ten books in the first few days of publishing on Amazon Kindle. I opted to write a series on a topic I know a great deal about. I am now putting the final touches to Book Two and will publish it in a week or two. I'm in business, now. In one word, David's book is unique and indispensable.
