One of the most astounding discoveries I made while writing and selling books was the fact that the sales from direct book sales should not be the main or the only source of revenue for authors. This was new to me before I ventured into the business. I used to think I can only make money with my books only if I can sell lots of copies of it. More
Direct Book sales: This is very common. Most authors have relied on this as their main source of income. Just like I mentioned above this should not be so. However, this is still a good source of revenue for your book especially if you know how to distribute or market your books. Writing your book is the first step in your book business, publishing it is another step, distributing or selling it is another and it is a very important one. You can't make money from your books sales if you don't have ways of putting it in the hands of people who will pay you cash in exchange for your book. Strategies in direct book sales are beyond the scope of this report but you can check out this great e-book, ‘Self-Publishing Resources For Your Book Business’. It describes the various ways you can sell your self-published books. Over 50 book sales resources are discussed in the book. If you want more information, please send an email to us.
