Making a Full-time Living from Self-Publishing – 6 Lessons Learned, with Lindsay Buroker
Our next superstar interview is up!
Lindsay Buroker is a full time indie fantasy and steampunk writer (aka Goblin writer – hence the pic on the left!) I’ve been a fan of Lindsay’s blog for a while, and she has some fantastic advice on marketing books on Amazon and beyond. Earlier this year I read her reflective blogpost ‘3 Years of Self-Publishing, 2 Years of Writing Full Time, and Lessons from 2013‘. It’s a great read and I knew I wanted to dig deeper on many of these points.
So, that’s exactly what we talk about in this interview! Lindsay’s 6 lessons learned from 2013. By the way, in the post there are 7 lessons. We didn’t cover lesson 1: Fiction for middle-grade and younger remains a tough sell in the e-book world simply because I wanted to make this interview relevant for self-published fiction authors of all genres.
– How to build this base of dedicated readers?
– Theories on why glowing reviews don’t always make for a best-seller and the book that gets hammered hardest might just sell well.
