A Fine Self Publishing Example - Free Download (16-17 March only)

I'm often asked how I'm able to make a full time living publishing books on Amazon. The answer in itself isn't rocket science, but there's a lot of work involved to get to the point I'm at right now. 

It's simple, but not easy!

Those that have worked with me will know that I'm a stickler for quality. I encourage people to create unique, personal and meaning books in order to grow a loyal readership. To some, that might sound difficult, but it's not nearly as tough as it sounds. 

It's simple, but not easy!

During previous FIRE Escapes I've had the pleasure of chatting about publishing to some of the attendees. I get the sense that some people want to know how I do it so they can follow a similar path, while others are just fascinated to know how it all works. 

Two attendees, M (from There's Value) and her close friend Martina, decided to take the bull by the horns and write their own book after discussing some of the finer details. Being full time mothers, the process has taken them longer than expected. They've battled through writers block and negotiated with editors but they're finally there. 

They told some of the attendees at the recent FIRE Escape that they planned on launching it soon. Some of you asked to be notified of it's release. So, here you go!

As of today and tomorrow (16-17th March) they're running their first Free Promotion on Amazon. If you want to support M and Martina, please download their book for free over the next 2 days, and share it with a friend.

I think they've done a sterling job and I wanted to share their work with you to show what's possible. As far as first attempts go, this is one of the best I've seen. 

If you're interested in trying Self Publishing, I think you could do far worse than checking out what these ladies have produced and use it as a benchmark.

I wish you both the best of luck with the promotion, and please let us know how you get on!

    Those are some serious figures and I hope they translate into some awesome sales. Well done to both of you!
