This episode comes from questions I got from several members of my course and Facebook group- is it really possible to make money as a self-published children's author? Is the income consistent? How much are we talking here? All good questions, and all get addressed in this episode. Earning money as a self-published children's author is totally different from how you earn it as a traditionally published author, so I thought it was important to tackle the money-making side of the process. I also give some of my most hard-earned tips for earning more from your books! In this episode, I cover: Whether it's really possible to make money as a self-published children's author What factors determine how much you can reasonably expect to make My tips for earning more from your books The kinds of books that usually sell the best Why you should publish even if your book isn't likely to sell a lot Just how "passive" the income is And much more!
