For those of you interested in finding out more about Jonny Andrews’ Perfect Publishing System, I’d like to offer my opinion of the course. First of all, understand that this is not a hit-and-run, get-rich-quick product that promises overnight wealth and (maybe) delivers just a few useful tips.
It’s a solid, long-term business model. It’s scalable, and it’s something you can outsource without compromising quality.
As an Amazon best-selling author in traditional, printed books, I’m very skeptical when I see junky products about writing & selling books (printed or Kindle) at Amazon.
This isn’t junk. It’s so ridiculously underpriced, I’ve recommended a significant price increase so people will really understand it’s true worth
This guy is a funny, witty, clever writer. He’s also 100% correct in what he says about book preparation and marketing. This report (and more than a dozen useful videos) is about Kindle, but this same information applies to printed books, too.
(A few authors aren’t going to like this one bit, since they’re among the “what not to do” examples.)
Okay, I’ve been published since the 1970s. (Yes, I started very young. ) Under a pen name, I’m one of Amazon’s best-selling authors in a slightly funky niche, and I have about 15 traditionally-published books in print.
I wish I’d had this report years ago.
Just one tip in Video #4 (about pen names) will now save me weeks of anguish and indecision, every time a publisher wants me to use a new pen name.
I’ll probably sell more books, too.
The title video (Video #5) points out a big mistake I made with one of my recent books. I changed the title, but still didn’t get it right. After seeing this video, I now know what I was doing wrong.
The cover video (Video #8) is going to save you time, and a bunch of money if you’re outsourcing book cover designs. I’ve been making this far too difficult (and artsy) and this video was a huge, embarrassing “ah-HA!” moment for me.
Video #11 showed me some truly brilliant tips that had never crossed my mind. See, several of my books are available in Kindle, but… well, people aren’t finding them.
When I recently spoke in Austin, a couple of fans actually asked me when I was coming out with Kindle editions.
I blinked and wondered what they were talking about.
When I got back to NH, I checked Amazon and the books are listed in Kindle… if someone has the patience to dig & dig to find them.
So, Video #11 explained the importance of doing something (several times) that I was actually afraid to try, in case it destroyed the trickle of sales I was getting.
This is the best Kindle guide I’ve read anywhere. And, I highly recommend it to anyone who’s publishing printed books, too. (In fact, the first thing I did when I skimmed this product content was to email another author and say, “You HAVE to get this.”)
It’s newbie-friendly, but it’s also a must-own for published authors or anyone who’s serious about a real career in book publishing.
This isn’t a get-rich-quick plan. However, with the speed of outsourcing and how quickly Amazon adds Kindle books to their lists, it could be as close to overnight wealth as anything can be.
