Frustrated with Conflicting Information on How to Self-Publish?

Book Cover, Secrets Every Author Should Know by Maggie Lynch


Wouldn’t it be wonderful to sit down with someone who has already made the mistakes, done the analysis, and will provide you the short cuts—the secrets about the things that work?


This first book in the Career Author Secrets series provides a foundation for navigating the indie publishing process and staying away from the scammers. It breaks down the requirements for self-publishing successfully, protecting your rights for the future, and YES I do share all the secrets I’ve learned.


It contains everything a DIY author needs to get her book from manuscript to professional publication in both ebook and print, including:


  • Why books don’t sell
  • Options for DIY or contracting professionals
  • The truth about ISBNs & Copyright Registration
  • Secrets for formatting your book the easy way
  • Creating book covers that sell
  • Making decisions about distribution

"I wish I had a book like this when I first started. I have read many 'author help' books and most of them are 95% cheerleader and only 5% substance. This one gives good information and gets "under the hood" with real practical examples where others only graze the surface." - Don DeBon, Science Fiction Author


"I picked up some great formatting tips in the book, got a detailed education on ISBNs and I learned a few things about Draft2Digital I didn't know though, I did previously learn (the hard way) how useful D2D is for formatting...I definitely recommend the book for anyone looking to self-publish for the first time and old hands will find value in it too." - Anne Hagan, Morellville Mysteries Author

"Maggie Lynch knows the book business exceptionally well and has a lot to offer new authors and even others who have questions on the tech side of the writing industry and all there is out there to help the process. It is a manual that I will pull out often to use as a reference or to experiment with new ideas. Every page of front and back cover is examined for the best results later in the marketplace. Great questions are posed that will make you rethink your strategies and make writing a book a less complicated journey. Maggie is clear and precise in her presentation and has an easy manner that doesn't create information overload. I would recommend this book as a wealth of information and a great reference for future works." - Marlene Bierworth, Historical Romance Author

"This brand new book is packed with current information, well written, conversational, and best of all, not intimidating--just what any aspiring author needs. The publishing world is confusing, ever evolving, and the author keeps up to date with the changes and shares information in an easy-to-understand manner. If you've ever wanted to write a book, or have written a book, and don't know what to do next, this is the perfect book for you. Seasoned authors will also find useful information here." - Susie Slanina, Children's Book Author
