Sean Platt and Johnny B. Truant published 1.5 million words and became full-time authors in 2013.
This book explains how they did it, and how you can too.
- Why thinking of your books as "products" can turn writing from a hobby into a steady income source.
- How you can outsell other authors by framing your books – even fiction! – as a business rather than just art.
- How a free book, when used in a smart marketing funnel, can earn you a ton of sales.
- Why book sales are governed by business principles that haven't changed in 50 years ... and aren't going to change anytime soon.
