Self-publishing Unboxed is a no-nonsense, no-hype guide to making a living from your selfpublished catalogue. It’s the cumulation of experience doing just this.
You intend to self-publish or have published a book or two. You’re not selling very well and wonder why not. You feel you should be doing something, but the thought of “marketing” gives you nightmares.
You don’t want to become one of these people shouting “Buy My Book!” on Twitter.
But you would still love to start selling some books, and pay some or even all of your bills with your writing income.
The good news is that this is ever more possible when self-publishing, if you set yourself up right.
This is where the three-year plan comes in.
The Three Year, No-Bestseller Plan For Making a Sustainable Living From Your Fiction has been a popular forum and blog post on the subject of career and audience building vs chasing sales and rankings of individual books.
People have long asked me if I’m going to turn the post into a book. The post itself is about 1500 words long, but it covers only an overview of the strategy and is intended for people who are already familiar with many of the tactics discussed. There is much I could add and explain in more detail.
Enter the books!

While it’s possible to reach for the stars and hope for a dream, for most authors, reality ends up being far more mundane. This book is a guide to navigate the waters of the midlist while taking advantage of the opportunities and not get lost in the many schemes that suck up your time or money.
This guide forms the basis of the series and is perfect for writers who are at the start of their careers. This can be a daunting time. There is so much to learn. How do you know what is important.
This is not a how-to guide.If you’re looking for tech instructions, the service providers have up-todate information on how and what to upload on their websites. Google can solve the rest. However, Google does not teach you the mindset that will allow you to navigate the morass. If anything, Google tries to sell you stuff. Books, expensive courses (advertised at you because you googled “self-publishing”).
How do you know what’s worth spending your money on?
