The Self-Publishing Industry was once hailed as a new day for authors. Freed of greedy publishers, they could chart a new course to success. Instead, the self-publishing industry has produced a sea of garbage written by people following bad advice from self-help writing gurus with ulterior movies. But even talented writers still face a near impossible task of standing out, or even finding affordable editing.
Self-published author Noah Murphy takes you through his failures and successes during his two years in a broken industry in denial about the the risks facing authors, and the true rewards it can offer them. This Book Will Fail: The Truth About A Self-Publishing Industry In Denial is a book every self-published author or those thinking of self-publishing needs to read.
There will be no more novels from me, editing them is too expensive in regards to the return. I’m going to focus on short work sold for 99 cents. And my next release is going to be something completely different from anything you’ve seen from me. I’ve gotten tired of an industry where you’re skewered for not hiring an editor, except the professional ones all cost thousands. Hence, This Book Will Fail, which originally was a joke on Twitter, but morphed in a 10,000 word critique of what feel is a broken industry via relating my experiences in everything from editing to this blog.
I could just post it here for free, but a 99 cent ebook with an eye-popping cover is going to draw more attention, and hopefully start a discussion. It will be out, hopefully, in late August, early September at the latest.
