How to Build a Successful Career as a Self-Published Author with Sean Platt
Time for another interview from the
7 Superstars in Writing and Publishing Series!
In this video, I chat with author Sean Platt.
Sean Platt is the author of children’s books (under the name Guy Incognito), and together with his co-authors Johnny Truant and David Wright, he’s written several series for adults. He also hosts the self-publishing podcast, a great show for anyone wanting to know the latest developments in indie publishing!
His recent book (co-written with Johnny Truant and David Wright) is called Write. Publish. Repeat: The No-Luck Guide to Self-Publishing Success.
It’s a brilliant, no-nonsense view of self-publishing that focuses on long-term and sustainable strategies rather than tactics and short-cuts that don’t work. And that’s exactly what we talk about in this video interview: how self-published writers can build a sustainable, future-proof career.
Some highlights of our interview include:
1. How to create books your readers will love
2. Understanding your readership / market (and your ideal reader)
3. The important details – covers, titles, formatting, price etc.
4. Sean scored a traditionally published deal with Amazon Serials and he talks about his experience there vs. his self-publishing experience
