Hi! I’m so glad you’re here.
I’m so excited you’re here, because that means you’re ready to take a big leap in your life and make a big impact in the world.
Today, we’re discussing identifying your passion/topic and your ideal audience. As well as, how your book fits in your business, inspired intros and a demo of Amazon’s Self-publishing Platform KDP.
Your Inspired Intro
Be concise. FOCUS on one thing. For many of you, this may be the first time you’re expressing yourself in this way. Yes, it’s difficult for everyone the first time. I’m showing you this as a skill you can use in your life and business, when promoting your book in the future.
This is an exercise that you need to revisit it often. Redo it after you write your book, and you’ll have even more clarity and more powerful ways of expressing it. It’s the first and last thing you’ll do in the book writing process.
This is part of the writing process, because it’s the core of your message. You need to be clear on that, in order to be clear on how to put your book together.
Prepare by getting in the right environment.
In the demo today, I’ll also be showing you KDP – Amazon’s Self-Publishing Platform.It’s Free to join and free to publish your books.
I’ll be showing you a royalties calculator of how to determine how to price your books and how much you can make on your books. In that calculator, it shows the cost, and the author price is normally around that, but the author price is determined when you go to purchase them, it will give you an exact price for them at that time.
Okay, well, your only cost, if you choose is the purchase your own books. As the author, you will be able to purchase your books at a far reduced rate. Almost at the cost price.
