    People pay to go to school, seminars and courses just to learn these things. I am absolutely grateful to listen to this for free in the comfort of my bedroom. God Bless all of you up there giving out these resources. I feel so confident after taking in this information. I believe I can write a book, skip the traditional and be successful. Thanks

    Do these guys even know they are totally talking down to everyone? And, their success, as they have admitted, is minimal at best. I guess that's academia for you.

    Thank you for sharing your wealth of knowledge. I am in the process to self publish a book of original song lyrics with the inspirational source of its background along with the scriptural applications for further study. It is designed to be a 20 day devotional and want to include either a link to the song or possible cd. Would the link best be done by You Tube, ITunes, apple music, or an mp3 button in the ebook?

    Very good discussion! Good point, Matt, re the "other publishers" reaction to Amazon/Create Space labeled products. Ingram Spark, okay, going there!

    I asked my professor about it and she told me traditional publishing is the better route and I should try self publishing in five years. I honestly havent submitted my works to like big publishing houses (just a few short story magazines). But I realize that I just want to make stories and see what people think.

    When I was in Ghana I loved the little 24 page books being sold in the market for the equivalent of 50 cents if I were to buy it in the US. They were great. Kind of like physical Kindle when you think about it. And those authors self publish or get with a publishing house, who tend to read your works more.

    Great and much needed video. For years  I could never get any publisher to read a submission of one of my books. Eventually I started to self publish with kindle and I've never been happier ever since. There is nothing like freedom. I will soon start to publish paper books with any of the platforms suggested here. Oddly enough now if Random House or any other big or small commercial publisher would offer me a billion pounds, let alone a million, for publishing any of my books with them I would reject their offer straight away. Done with them. They are useless to unpublished writers, they only want big names and celebrities. In fact I don't even buy anymore any of their books, most of them are hyped up rubbish anyway.

    Fantastic information, but don't rush out and "quit the day job!" Matt did a great job introducing the traditional publishing route, saying that "the agent is the gatekeeper." Good info on royalties via self publishing vs. traditional publishing. Great panel with great information on the world of self-publishing. Now I am a little less depressed 🙂 I have three manuscripts to publish and get into the hands of children. Lightning Source/Ingram and Create Space are sounding pretty good to me right now. Thanks for this info.

    All this agent, to get an agent, to have your work published. And, as mentioned during the discussion, all of those other gestapo type hoop jumps required in order to tell your story to those who may be interested or in need perhaps, of it's benefiting gestalts? These have been insanely in reign, for far, too long. Thank heavens self publishing, has afforded the inspired author… an affordable publishing niche, to go on ahead with, that is far from the waiting around for, that strung out monetary success, held up or meted out by… those in charge of the myriad of conventional publishing companies.
    Personally, it has afforded the work in which i had conduited… avoid, the body of the story's intact child… to become callously severed, by their King Solomon's blade editing solutions. Those kinds that they erroneously believe, will make them and the public reader happier. No… every author has a mother and child relationship with their story. One that they would be willing to allow that child/story… be shelved from the death of it. Even if it means that they… it's true birther… had held it's love, only but for a short while. 
    Again… thankfully, Amazon has no such appetites, or political persuasions, that have, or that would have me, have to bow down to. -gilpin 10-7-15

    Hi everyone! After a couple of years of agonizing over my manuscript, I finally decided to self-publish my spy thriller, Caught in PRISM's Web. It's currently listed on Amazon for pre-order. Currently, I'm listed in the top 20 Hot New Releases for Political Thrillers & Suspense but have been fluctuating wildly from #13 to #19 over the past 48 hours. Is this normal? How can I stabilize my ranking / sales? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Please feel free to check out the book and give me any advice / constructive criticism that comes to mind.

    I also have wanted to be a Published Author for years. Now it the time and I have began an outline of what is needed IMHO. Let me share my outline, others can add to it:

    Chose any Subject/Topic that I have a lot of knowledge or expertise in, sell a few. However, also write/publish about HOT Topics to make more money but may need a ghost writer.

    Must Research:
    1. What topics the best sellers are!
    2. What is the style of writing?
    3. How many words or pages the best sellers? 10,000 words? 40-120 pages?
    4. Find “NATIVE” ghost writers. Must do for quality.
    5. Buy graphics or photos as needed, do not take from net.
    6. Trial editions are okay to get some experience, but do not spend too much time.
    7. Do it now!

    Thank you sincerely for this video. I had already intended on self-publishing with Kindle, but was still tempted to try traditional publishing. As what Wes said, being a control-freak and rather impatient I'm glad to know with 15% royalties, it is by no means the right path for me. So thank you again, I learned a lot!

  • Ervin Harmon

    I enjoyed this very much. In my opinion one thing that hurts Self published authors more than a Traditional author is the fact that Amazon and Barnes and Noble sell used books that the author does not make a royalty on. If they make a kindle amazon doesn't sell used Kindles so the author gets a Royalty on every Kindle that is sold. I would like to see Amazon and Barnes and Noble to add a fee to their used books they sell so the author will get a royalty on the resold book. If people could not buy a used book they would have to buy a new book if they wanted on and so then the author would get a Royalty on every book sold just like they would if they sold a kindle. I hope someone gets behind this and work to end Amazon selling used books that the author does't get a royalty on sales.

    If you are going to do print on demand, never use Create Space.
     Create Space is TERRIBLE. They have shipped me damaged books several times in a row, have no quality control, and are major bunglers. Do not use them. I have several bookstores waiting to put my books on their shelves but Create Space  can't get decent quality books to me–and even when they re-ship the order, those books are worse. Do NOT use them. They are terrible. I have lost huge amounts of time dealing with these problems and still have no solution. They really suck. Use somebody else. Posted June 18, 2015:
