There's never been a better time to become a writer, and to be in charge of your own destiny rather than jumping through hoops to please the Powers that Be.

Truant to explore everything related to getting published in today's new DIY digital publishing frontier. This isn't artsy talk... we're business guys with no-BS strategies to help you make self-publishing a rewarding reality. Submit your questions at SelfPublishingPodcast.com!

Self Publishing Podcast #158 – How to Sell Big on Apple iBooks with Julia Kent
5 days ago
One of the biggest strategies we push here on SPP is “go wide,” and for good reason. Select may make you more money in the short term, but nothing beats getting a foothold in your as many markets as possible, earning readers Amazon can’t deliver.
But how can you get that foothold in other platforms if you can’t figure out how to sell BIG on those platforms, platforms like Apple iBooks?
Enter Julia Kent. She was sent our way by Apple to explain how she got started selling HUGE in their store. Much of her advice is valid, even if you aren’t a Romance writer like her, and even for platforms other than Apple. To listen closely and take notes! Find Julia online at: http://www.jkentauthor.com/
