Are you an indie author? Here’s a question for you… What’s your self-publishing strategy?
The more clearly you can define exactly what you want each book/ ebook to do, as well as the results you want over the next 12 months, the more easily you can create a strategy for success.
(Your strategy is basically just a plan.)
When I coach indie authors who aren’t happy with their sales, their backlist of titles tells you a great deal. Often there are one or two things the author can do immediately to generate sales.
With that done, the author is much happier and more confident. Then we can create a strategy the author can implement going forward.
A truly simple strategy for veteran self-publishers and newbies too
Bundling is one simple strategy I suggest to both veteran self-publishers as well as to new authors. I’ve used bundling in an ad hoc fashion over the past few years. My research for our new report ensured that going forward, I’ll be using it as a primary strategy.
It’s a strategy I commend to you, too. Why? Because it works.
- Saves time — publishing a bundle is much quicker than writing a new book;
- Gives you more bang for your buck, literally. It saves money on advertising;
- Is inexpensive. Buy or create a cover, and you’re good to go.
From the report’s page — bundling ensures that you can:
- Make profits from previously-published books which are no longer selling;
- Boost sagging profits if you haven’t released new books for a while;
- Win readers for your other books…
While there are many ways to profit from bundling, most authors are unaware of more than a couple of them. The bottom line: authors who avoid bundling make less income.

Why write serial fiction?
Everyone's busy today. A serial is by its nature, faster to write, and publish, than a novel.
It's a quicker read too, and many readers appreciate this. While a reader may hesitate before committing hours to a novel, he can read an episode of your serial in minutes.More info →
