Hey there! I set up this page to welcome new subscribers with some free books. If you don’t know who I am, please browse around my site a bit: I mainly help people publish and market their books, or start creative online businesses quickly that make money right away. If you joined my list, I’ll send a few emails soon that will set you down the right path to creative independence (creating stuff that people want to buy, so that you don’t ever have to work again).
But I won’t annoy you every few days; I only write if I have something big going on. Sometimes I give away free vacations, free book design packages or other valuable stuff. I’ll also let you know when I develop new tools or resources to help you publish better or faster, but those take months to develop. I’m working on a couple major book projects that I think you’ll like, but I’ve also been cranking out shorter, practical guides. For now, here are some of the books I’ve written (free for you – they’re also for sale at Amazon).
GRAB MY FREE GUIDE TO PUBLISHING BESTSELLERS
This is a brief guide to the book marketing strategies I’ve used to become a full-time author in under a year. We’ll discuss paid advertising, release strategies, pricing and pre-orders, book giveaways, how to target your audience, viral exposure and press coverage, marketing hacks, and how to reach your first $1000 on Kindle.

Book Marketing is Dead
I recently redid Book Marketing is Dead but only put the new version on Amazon HERE.
How to Write, Format, Publish, Promote…
This is a basic crash course on self-publishing… I cover a lot of ground, and it’s free – but you should also check out this Guide to Surviving the Self-Publishing Gauntlet.
Book cover design secrets that sell more books
This is a collection of the presentations I’ve given on book design at various writing conferences – however you should also check out the free video series I’ve added to www.diybookcovers.com.
100 Publishing Questions Answered
I asked my audience for their biggest frustrations and problems, then answered all their questions. This is kind of an encyclopedia of publishing. Hope it helps!
I want to give you as much valuable stuff as I can, so I’ll be updating this page whenever I have new resources to offer.
Here’s a WP plugin I developed for this site. It’s pretty cool. (Highlight the text on this page to see it). But the Facebook part isn’t working right anymore because Facebook updated their code so that we can’t share only a selection of text. It’s still pretty great for Twitter.
DIY Covers (make your own book covers)
One of my major projects, DIY Covers, is focused on helping authors make professional, high quality book covers without needing a designer. You may want to sign up there for a different email series that’s more focused on publishing and marketing. I’m working on some amazing new tools and an online cover creator – make sure you’re on the list if you want to make your own 3D promo graphics like these…
