Publisher's Summary

In 2013, Johnny B. Truant and Sean Platt published 1.5 million words and made their full-time livings as indie authors. In Write. Publish. Repeat., they tell you how exactly how they did it: How they created over 15 independent franchises across 50+ published works, how they turned their art into a logical, sustainable business, and how any independent author can do the same to build a sustainable, profitable career with their writing. Write. Publish. Repeat. explains the current self-publishing landscape and covers the truths and myths about what it means to be an indie author now and in the foreseeable future. It explains how to create books your readers will love and will want to return to again and again. Write. Publish. Repeat. details expert methods for building story worlds, characters, and plots, understanding your market (right down to your ideal reader), using the best tools possible to capture your draft, and explains proven best practices for editing. The audiobook also discusses covers, titles, formatting, pricing, and publishing to multiple platforms, plus a bit on getting your books into print (and why that might not be a good idea!). But most importantly, Write. Publish. Repeat. details the psychology-driven marketing plan that Sean and Johnny built to shape their stories into "products" that readers couldn't help but be drawn into - thus almost automatically generating sales - and explores ways that smart, business-minded writers can do the same to future-proof their careers. This audiobook is not a formula with an easy path to follow. It is a guidebook that will help you build a successful indie publishing career, no matter what type of writer you are...so long as you're the type who's willing to do the work.

    "Just what I needed."

    Perfect book for anyone looking to be an indy writer. I listened to the whole thing in two days. It has tons of great information presented in a very entertaining and engaging way. I think this will become a required handbook for all indy publishers.

    "excellent narrator "

    while the book is well written and very informative, the narrator, Simon Whistler, likewise does an outstanding job. pleasant voice and in the appendix takes that extra step to make himself sound like he's talking over a phone or recorder. great stuff.

    "Extremely helpful book!"

    This book is full of candid and beneficial insight. If I have any complaint it would be that I could have lived without the profanity. I think that anyone who believes that displaying a "potty-mouth" is the new standard of cool/transparency should not complain we they are called out on it. Obviously not everyone agrees!

    "Valuable information that other books don't have"

    It took a while to get through the beginning, they kept saying all the stuff they would be telling us for far too long. But once they FINALLY got to the core of the information, it was very very helpful. I am so glad I did not stop listening like I almost did. This is a fantastic book and the brilliance of the info far outweighs the annoying beginning.

    "Thorough (and long) A-Z guide"

    I liked this book and provided me good insights to write and publish my first book. My impression is that it's too long at some points given the explanations have a lot of background to make the message go through and be understood correctly.

    "Game changer"

    A review won't do justice to the great paradigm shifting content in this book. It lays out the simple (not easy) strategies the authors have used with plenty of examples from their real life books and experiences. The authors don't BS with secret ninja tricks - there aren't any and they tell you there aren't any. This is a must have for all authors self publishing.

    "Not a Self-Publishing Guide"
    Any additional comments?

    This audiobook is mostly the author talking about himself and his business partner. It is not a guide to self-publishing success. It was not useful to me.

    "It's what the book is suppose to be about."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would


    Any additional comments?

    The title promises to be about approaching writing from a business standpoint and that is exactly what it does. Would recommend for people who want to write for a business.

    "Inspirational, irreverent, practical"

    Narrator is easy on the ears. Scads of business ideas. Makes me want to write.

    "Awesome and Inspiring"

    I purchased this audio book to listen to in my car on my way to and from work, mainly to keep me motivated to write. A great additional benefit was all of the great tips, insights and opinions shared. The narrator did a fabulous job and was easy on the ears. If you're an aspiring writer and you want a small kick in the pants to get or keep you going, I highly recommend this book.
