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.

learn or laugh?

I have never had so much fun learning from a book as I have with this. The information was invaluable and I'm sure I would use much of it as a young writer I'm always looking for ways to improve but your presentation and narrating was over the top and I found myself laughing out loud more than once thank you thank you thank you

Very Informative and Entertaining

What made the experience of listening to Write. Publish. Repeat. the most enjoyable?

The narrator was superb, and the advice given in the book was honest and good.

What about Simon Whistler’s performance did you like?

He read in a conversational tone which fit perfectly with the book.

Any additional comments?

While I could have done without some of the swearing and the examples used, the authors were up front about what would be included. They were honest and unapologetic about everything. I learned some valuable ideas about self-publishing.

THE How To Book for Writing and Self Publishing

I have read this book in my spare moments and between writing and editing, then between editing and publishing.

I get a deeper understanding with every new perspective I bring to the book!

Language alert: there are F bombs, among other swear words. It's the way they also talk in their Podcast.

Inspiring

I was worried about being a writer. This book put all those worries to bed. So instead of worrying about what. I worry about plot and characters.

I'm Glad I Made This Purchase

I listened to this audiobook over a month. I don't believe I learned anything "new" but it was nice to hear it. It was even better to have it in one place. I expect I'll revisit this audio again and I plan to purchase the print book because I would love to see some of the examples. And I think the narrator was perfect for this project.

Excellent marketing book

I bought this book with the intention of using it as a marketing tool. The authors manage to convey a fantastic view of what the self-publishing landscape looks like. They are not presenting unreasonable, unrealistic, magic solutions. Their advice and suggestions are manageable and wholly within the reach of anyone wanting to self-publish.

Good Advice

I enjoyed the book. I should probably go back to certain sections to review as it is jam packed with advice.

#1 take away. Work hard and work continuously.

Great advice and great narration. Very motivating

This is an amazing book to give you guidelines to starting your own indie publishing career. This doesnt tell you everything, but it does give you advice for other books, blogs, and podcasts to learn more. It is an amazing resource. I feel a little upset that I got the audio book though. This being a resource that I will go back to, a hard copy is definitely worth it.
