Press Release: It’s the Secret ALL Savvy Authors Know… Marketing Sells Books!

The 2012 Self-Publishing Survey by Taleist, of more than 1,000 authors who had self-published in the previous year, found the average income earned per author was $10,000, however more than 50% of respondents had only earned $500 or less from the sale of their books!

The reality of the growing trend in self-publishing is that only the top 10% of self-published authors earn 75% of the income.

It’s not all doom and gloom though with authors that had enlisted the help of editors, typesetters, designers and proof readers earning 34% more on average.

This October and November Book Marketing Coach, Rochelle Stone of Barefoot Basics will be running a free series of ‘Beyond the Manuscript’ seminars through the Sunshine Coast Libraries.

It’s important that authors see their self-publishing journey as a small business venture. In most cases, when they begin to create a structure for their book, the author is the greatest secret in their industry. The purpose of the ‘Beyond the Manuscript’ seminar is to demystify the book marketing and distribution journey that will ultimately guide the sales of their book.”

During the ‘Beyond the Manuscript’ seminar authors will be provided with insights into:

  1. Defining Their Book, Audience and Milestones
  2. Building Their Online Platform
  3. Establishing their Distribution Model
  4. Building Their Profile with PR & Publicity
  5. How to Monetise Their Book
  6. Developing Their Book Marketing Plan
