In this episode, I cover everything I did to make sure my recent book launch on Amazon was a success. Hitting the top of the charts in two categories in less than a week was a surprise, but any author can have similar results by following the tips I share in the podcast. Here is some of the relevant info with links I cover in the show:
- Emory Skwara’s newest release, Of Song and Singularity, is available now!
- Headtalker is an excellent social media crowdsourcing site that can make your launch go viral.
- Most of the credit for hitting the Top 100 charts goes to Chandler Bolt and Nick Loper. Check out Chandler’s free videos and Nick’s Udemy course for more insights.
- Advertising through Fiverr and freebie sites like Slickdeals and FatWallet.
Two more awesome things I cover in the podcast:
- The Blade Heir is FREE for a limited time when you join my Readers Group. Click this for more details and to get your copy!
- I’m in the planning stages of a book cover art course for authors. The aim is to teach other authors the fundamentals of cover design I’ve learned over the years so that indies will have one less thing to worry about when self-publishing their books. The course would include interviews from experts in graphic design, PSD templates to use for cover ideas, PDF cheatsheets, an ebook, and more. It’s going to be a major project, so I want to see if there’s enough interest before going forward.

Thanks for this podcast. It was my first dive into this aspect of publishing–and a deep one it was! You have obviously done a lot of learning already. I appreciate your willingness to share it. Time now for me to go digest it all…
You’re welcome, thanks for the feedback! Yes, it’s definitely a lot of information to take in for would-be publishers, but it gets easier with each release. If you have any questions on any aspect, don’t hesitate to post on the blog or send me an email at email@example.com. Best of luck!
