The Amazon Self Publisher: How to Sell More Books on Amazon

The Amazon Self Publisher: How to Sell More Books on Amazon by [Dale L. Roberts, Julie Broad]

Save yourself some time and heartache and read this book before going out and promoting your book. Especially if you are a first-time author. When I published my first book I went out and tried to tell the world about it. Long story short, I did everything wrong. Everything that author Dale Roberts tells you specifically not to do in his book The Amazon Self Publisher. It took me months to learn these lessons the hard way. Lesson’s that Dale details in his book. You’ll learn what works, what not to do, and where to spend time doing your research.

What I like most about this book is how personable it is. There are plenty of tips and tricks and practical advice all throughout this book, but what we also get is personal stories from Dale about his own publishing experiences. All of the stories provide more context or real-world examples of the ideas we’re exploring in each chapter. This reminds me of Stephen Kings book On Writing, where we are given great advice along with personal stories to create something that is way more valuable then either on their own. Where Stephen King’s On Writing will tell you how to write a book, Dale Robert’s book will tell you how to set that book up for success when you publish.

The Amazon Self Publisher is a collection of Dale’s three books in his Amazon Self Publisher series, and is a distillation of the ideas he shares on his YouTube channel. This is a fantastic starting point for new authors, or authors struggling to figure out how Amazon Keywords work, how to get reviews, and how to promote their book. While I would have appreciated more depth to some of the topics, and more actionable tips, everything that is presented is perfect to get struggling authors off the ground and put them on a level playing field with other successful indie authors.

The Amazon Self Publisher gives readers an understanding of the Amazon platform along with strategies to promote your book on that platform, and to be successful outside of it as well. This is a fantastic resource for authors and anyone that wants insight into selling a product on Amazon.
