Self-Publishing Your First Book
A behind the scenes podcast series on what it takes to launch a self-published book
Alyssa and I recently sat down and recorded a 5-part podcast series where we shared everything she learned in the process of writing & launching her first self-published book (A Beginner's Guide to Living in an RV).
One thing we've tried to consistently do ever since we started our business from our RV is to document what we learn through in any given launch or new product we work on. What worked, what didn't work, what would we change, where did we waste tons of time and how can this information be helpful for someone else?
In the same manner, we wanted to dig into the nuts of bolts of what it took to write a book and release it on Amazon.
Specifically, in this podcast series we cover:
- The major fears Alyssa had about writing her book (imposter syndrome is a real thing)
- The power of Amazon and how to understand the factors that influence people finding your product
- Writing tips to help you get your first 10k words written
- The strategies we used to launch Alyssa's book
In the 8 months from the time Alyssa's book was released to recording this podcast series, her book sold over 13,000 copies on Amazon, garnered over 200 5-star reviews, and has been the #1 RV Travel book for over 6 months.
In this free course you can listen to the 5 interviews we recorded, as well as dig into the lessons where Alyssa shares what she did at each stage of the book launch.
Excited to see you inside!
