Let me be brutally frank.
I believe in plain and simple “Essentialism”.
That is, in fact, the underlying philosophy of this Book, as well as that of my entire “Self-publishing WITHOUT SPENDING A DIME” series of books.
Do you want to know why? For that, let me start with a little background.
After a reasonably successful stint in Corporate Law, I started my writing career in September 2013. In just about two years, I have been able to write and publish 14 books (this is the 15th) in three genres—cookbooks (Cooking In A Jiffy series), motivational books for introverts (Quiet Phoenix series) and self-publishing (Self-Publishing WITHOUT SPENDING A DIME series).
In addition, I could also publish eleven translations of my books into languages such as German, Italian, Japanese, Spanish, and Portuguese. Four more are in the process of translation into various languages.
Like any other writer, I was initially clueless about marketing. So I researched, picked up a lot of business books on marketing for authors and, believe it or not, read all of them. Most books expounded on so many strange and esoteric marketing techniques that they left me baffled, bewildered and terribly confused.
Many advised writers to blog, podcast, hang out on Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, Tumblr, Reddit, Stumble Upon, Pinterest, LinkedIn and goddamn any other social media site that they, the writers, could get a hang of. They also recommended to create YouTube Videos and online courses. Some wanted you to pick up speaking assignments, and in addition take the initiative to contact guest bloggers and book reviewers.
THIS IS NOT THE INTENTION OF THIS BOOK, let me declare it loud and clear.
