Well, what if that wasn't the case? What if those "published books" started as simple notepads and a burning desire to publish a book?
Hi, my name is Lasana Philbert, and I have been a writer and poet for over 20 years, and a self-published author since 2018. The #1 thing I get asked by my friends and strangers alike is, "How did you become an author? And, "How did you get Amazon and Barnes and Noble to sell your books globally?"
If you're like most conscious writers, you probably feel like your work has to go through a traditional publishing house to be sold on Amazon or at Barnes and Noble. And it's okay to have those feelings. I, too, had those feelings. That was until a college friend of mine told me about self-publishing.
After months of painstaking research, I learned that Kindle Direct Publishing offered the best options for self-publishing authors: The best book royalties for indie authors and the largest global distribution channels in which to market books. So I chose to work with them to manifest my dreams of being a published author.
I further learned that, contrary to popular beliefs about self-publishing, many Independent authors were making a name and money for themselves. There are so many to name here, I'll just choose two: Darcai Chan and John Locke.
That said, I want to show you how you too can self-publish "professional quality" books with nothing more than the work that is already sitting right next to you! Yes, all those pieces of scrap paper with your short stories, poetry, and prose can be your claim to success, as an author and writer.
You don't need to be a pro because I've boiled down the very best of my 20+ years of writing and my extensive knowledge of self-publishing with Kindle Direct Publishing into a simple, step-by-step guide.
