I wonít deny it.
My classmatesí comments did hurt me a lot during my school years. People
didn't take me seriously. They saw me more as a practical joker, a clown.
They also thought I was more interested in sports than anything more substantive.
But, truth be known, they were mostly right!
Later, when I ďmade it,Ē I found that massive success changes you a lot.
It has a way of soothing even the deepest wounds. Whoever said that success
is the greatest revenge was right!
However, becoming a successful publisher was not the result of some grand
plan. It was more an accident.
As I look back, it seems like a dream come true. Imagine, after stumbling
into the publishing field, I've written and published 14 best sellers
of my own which have sold in excess of 3,000,000 copies. A few of my titles
you may be familiar with include HOW TO FORM YOUR OWN CORPORATION WITHOUT
A LAWYER FOR UNDER $75, MAGIC WORDS THAT BRING YOU RICHES, and HOW I SOLD
$400 MILLION DOLLARS OF PRODUCTS AND SERVICES.
I have also published 53 major best-selling books by other authors.
A brief history
Before I began my publishing career I was
a successful small business entrepreneur. Actually, I founded and sold
18 companies by the time I was 36. But for me something was missing
in my life.
I took personal inventory. What really turned me on?
The biggest thrill I ever had at that time had nothing to do with business.
It was to have my letters to the editor (a hobby) published in a few
newspapers and magazines. What a high it was!
I became hooked on
my words in print!
My dream was to somehow find a way to start
a business publishing ideas. And information. Mind you, this wasn't
a brilliant breakthrough.
The experts were unanimously in agreement. We are in the middle of the
I came up with an idea for a book based on my experiences in business.
I called it HOW TO FORM YOUR OWN CORPORATION WITHOUT A LAWYER FOR UNDER
It would save small business owners a small fortune in legal fees. I
just knew it would be a big hit. Entrepreneurs like myself hate unnecessary
expenses, especially legal fees.
But, much to my amazement,
nine publishers turned me down!
What a favor they did me! With a borrowed
$5,000, I started my own publishing firm at home. My office was in the
corner of my living room. I called it Enterprise Publishing Company.
I learned that there is a right way and a wrong way to publish. Doing
it my way is like building a money machine.
For example, a month ago I invested $1,850 in a new mailing for a book.
Thirty days later my return was $10,463.50! And the mailing results
will continue to roll in for another several weeks!
In my book HOW TO PUBLISH A BOOK AND SELL
A MILLION COPIES I'll show you step by step how you can have your own
low-overhead, high-return publishing business.
Three major publishing myths
I quickly discovered most of what people
believed (including me) about publishing is just not true. There are
so many myths, itís astonishing. The three most prevalent are:
Myth #1: The best place to sell books is in bookstores. This is completely
false! While bookstores certainly can and should have
a role, they are not the best place at all. The fact is, only one out
of seven people each year go to a bookstore to buy a book!
Indeed, for many books bookstores are often the worst place to sell
them. Plus, with the hassles and delay in payment (average 181 days
to get your money) it's often not worth it.
Iíll show you how to market by direct mail, space ads, Internet, specialty
markets and many other offbeat ways and sell books like crazy. For example,
I earn an average of $6,974.15 profit each month from the Internet on
just one of my books I wrote 6 years ago (now an e-book).
Myth #2: You have to be a great writer to have a successful book. False
too. Publishing is not writing. Publishing is the business that makes
money from the written word. Publishing approached correctly can
be a very, very profitable business.
There is at least one great book in every human being. However, many
fine best-selling books (including three of my own) are ghostwritten
by others. Iíll show you how to find the best ones (at surprisingly
low cost) if you donít want or donít have the time to write it yourself.
Myth #3: A good publisher will market your book for you. This is also
completely false. Conventional publishers only distribute books. They
do little or nothing to market them effectively. You, the author, must
market the book. Thatís precisely why you should at least explore self-publishing.
Since you have to market it yourself anyway, you may decide to keep
100% of the revenue rather than the paltry 5-15% royalty a publisher
will pay you. If you can find one at all.
Itís getting tougher and tougher to find
a publisher as a new author. More and more authors are turning to self-publishing
in order to land a top publishing deal. Itís often necessary to prove
sales of 5,000 to 10,000 copies in order to get a publisherís attention.
Thatís the reason many books which landed
on best-seller lists were first self-published, including: , Conversations with God, What Color is Your
Parachute and The Erroneous
