If you have a book idea, how do you take that from idea to getting that book out there?
How do you get published?
💰 How do you get paid? 💰
I want to share my journey of becoming a published author with you today.
My 1st book, Soldier of Finance, released in 2013. You can check it out here: http://amzn.to/2oUa6FV
Be sure to stick with me to the end to find out how much I got paid.
💡 So first my idea - it actually came from a moment of disappointment.
I was contacted by CNBC who wanted to interview me as an Independent Certified Financial Advisor for a show they were doing. 😃
The flew me out, did the interview, and then the show was cancelled. 😞
But the producer said to me, "You know you should write a book that talks about the soldier's discipline to investing.
🎆🎆 Boom! This really resonated with me and I knew I had to write this book.
So I have the idea, now how to get published?
I know I had the option to get published on Amazon, but I wanted to use a traditional publisher. I wanted to be able to go into the book store and see my book on the shelf. 📚
I contacted multiple agents -- with zero success. All the big publishers said No!
While they liked the idea, I was a new author and they wanted to focus their time and resources on promoting their top authors.
But I kept trying and I finally found a Publisher that said Yes! The publisher was Amacom.
Now that I have the book and the publisher, how do I get paid?
For me, as a new author, I received a [have to watch the video to find out 😆] advance for projected sales, up front. I also receive residual checks twice a year based on actual sales.
So that is the basic run down on how to write a book and get paid. If you are interested in purchasing my book, you can find the link below. 👇
