Traditional publishers are machines. They will give you a small amount of money, make you work like a slave, publish your book after only barely looking at it, and shove it down the throats of bookstores.
Within a week or two, they’ll know if they’re willing to support your book any further. Then it’s over.
But it feels good, right? To have someone choose you. To have someone say, “I like your idea and your writing. We want to publish your book.”
It’s like candy for the soul.
We can’t blame anyone for trying traditional publishing just for the experience.
But it’s not the best route to success.
Because for the first time ever, you can publish your own book — and do it professionally!
You see, the best editors, designers, and marketers no longer work at the big publishing houses. Instead, they are striking out on their own and independently charging for their services.
Consider that editors in publishing houses are usually overworked and underpaid. If you’re not a big name author for that publisher, you might get an intern or a fresh graduate who doesn’t know what he or she is looking for.
But now you’re not limited to who is on a publisher’s staff. You can pick the people you want working on your book to make it the best.
That way, you can become your own mini-publishing company to put out your book.
While this might seem overwhelming and expensive, it’s not.
In this course, bestselling author and self-publishing superstar James Altucher breaks down the best way to write your book from start to finish.
Then he reveals his secrets for producing and marketing your book — so you can start making money from your masterpiece immediately!
