Please note also that this book describes Amazon publishing BEFORE the introduction of Kindle books, which are discussed in later books of Aaron's. There has never been a self publishing manual like this. "Aiming at Amazon" is NOT about getting your book into bookstores. Instead, it lays out an innovative approach that targets sales on It reveals how to make a book sell well online, with tips never before offered. And it shows you how Amazon REALLY works -- not how self-proclaimed experts wish it did! You will learn -- Why Amazon sales offer your best chance of success in self publishing. -- Why letting Amazon order books directly from you is the least profitable approach. -- How to make your book most visible on Amazon. -- How to make your cover image most prominent. -- How to optimize content on Amazon's page for your book. -- How to increase Customer Reviews without violating Amazon's terms and conditions, as well as professional ethics. -- Why many Amazon marketing techniques highly recommended by other authors are nearly useless. -- Why it takes a full year for Amazon sales of your book to reach their peak. -- Where to go on Amazon to get the help you need. Avoid publishing plans that handicap you almost before you begin, and marketing plans that waste your time and money. Let "Aiming at Amazon" introduce you to the NEW business of self publishing. ////////////////////////////////////////////////// Aaron Shepard is a foremost proponent of the new business of profitable self publishing through print on demand, which he has practiced and helped develop since 1998. Unlike most authorities on self publishing, he makes the bulk of his living from his self-published books -- not from consulting, speaking, freelance writing, or selling publishing services. In a parallel life, Aaron is an award-winning children's author with numerous books from publishers large and small. ////////////////////////////////////////////////// "Aaron Shepard has been more successful selling through Amazon than any other self publisher I know. If you want to self publish and get the most from it, this book is for you." -- Morris Rosenthal, author, "Print-on-Demand Book Publishing" "Solid gold advice. . . . Aiming At Amazon will dramatically increase your odds of success. A few hours with this book will give you the benefit of years worth of hard-earned experience." -- Steve Weber, author, "The Home-Based Bookstore" "If you want to learn how to sell more books on Amazon, this is the best book I've read on the subject. . . . Thanks to books like this, self-published authors have a chance to succeed against traditionally-published competitors." -- Stacie Vander Pol, author, "Top Self Publishing Firms" "Shepard is considered one of the pioneers of marketing print-on-demand (POD) books through Amazon. . . . I highly recommend Aiming At Amazon to self-publishers and authors who want to publish a book at little cost. The model pioneered by Shepard, Rosenthal, and others is probably the best way for a newcomer to enter the world of self-publishing." -- Peter Hupalo, Midwest Book Review

Is the idea of self-publishing daunting to you? According to a New York Times report, 81% of Americans aspire to write a book but few ever write one and even fewer ever publish a book. The obstacles seem great, but as Martin Luther King said, "You don't have to see the whole staircase - just take the next step." Whether you're an aspiring writer, have already written a book or are a trade published author looking for a different publishing direction, there is no better time than now to get your words out there through self-publishing. This is not a motivational book. Instead, this book walks you through the steps of self-publishing; from ideas on how to flex your writing muscles to word processing choices to finally seeing your book sold on Amazon. Save your money. There is no reason to spend hundreds or even thousands on expensive, unnecessary publishing services. From editing, formatting and cover design to finally self-publishing your e-book on Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing, this book suggests steps and self-publishing tools carefully picked with those on a budget in mind. Self-publishing is not complicated. In fact, it is a simple process. Simple, however, does not mean easy. Gleaning information from many bestselling self-published authors, and written by a bootstrapped self-published author of over a dozen books (8 which hit Amazon's category bestseller lists), this book will show you how you can write your first word to publishing your final product on Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing without even spending a dime.

The craft of writing and marketing a book has changed significantly over the past 10 years. It is no longer enough to just write a good book; you have to write for a specific audience and connect to your readers long before the book hits the shelves. Releasing part of your work early allows you to make adjustments to your book—or even discard your project entirely in order to invest your time into a better book idea. Using modern project management methods, you can organize your work into individual steps ("user stories"), and reuse them to market your book. Organizing the book into logical sections helps you to create preview materials for blog posts or newsletters. In addition, this will ensure that you make steady progress, avoid getting lost in the details and achieve high quality consistently throughout your book. --- Do you recognize yourself in one of these people? This book is for "Peter." - First-time author. - Has a "complete" script, "had a friend look at it," and now wants to publish it. - Might need (unsolicited) advice to properly edit it instead of just going through a "self-edit." - Needs to be reminded about the difficulties of selling a book. Has no idea about marketing. - Has not worked with an editor. - Creates his own book covers. - Would benefit from a "pep talk." This book is for "Mary." - Writes novels in Word but now wants to write a non-fiction book. - Undecided about what tools to use. - Works with an editor, but she and her editor have no real work structure. - Does not know how to market, find market niches, etc. Her past successes were random, and she never knew if her latest novel would sell or not. This book is for "John." - Professional editor seeking to expand his services from merely editing Word files to helping release books online. - Also is looking for better project management techniques to help guide an author along the way. - Often works in scientific fields and thus has to manage a lot of bibliographical references. - Spends lots of time indexing books. - Is OK with a LaTeX template but seeks to get a head start by making adjustments to it. This book is for "George." - LaTeX expert who wants to publish his work as an e-book. - Needs basic direction and then figures out the rest on his own. - Plans to do a series with a glossary and often needs to reuse blocks of text. - Needs some help in terms of book design, polishing, and graphics. - Loves to share work and collaborate with others. This book is for "Tina." - Professional self-publisher who is seeking additional ideas to improve her publishing process. - Looks for ways to establish herself as a brand and create a network of readers. This book is for "Clara." - Wants to write a book about her profession in order to establish herself as an expert but has no idea where to start. --- Table of Contents: - Great Expectations - Incorporate Books into Your Professional Career - Starting a New Book - What to Keep and What to Remove - Selecting Personas - How to Organize Your Ideas - How to Organize Your Ideas (Fiction Books) - The Rules of Your Book - How to Optimize the Work Process - How to Get Early Feedback from Readers - How We Can Help with Project Management
