I asked Amy to create this course because, as an author, book coach and book ghostwriter for many book authors, I found that the really tough part of the book experience is around getting your book sold. I've been asked more than 200 times in the last decade, "What's my ROI going to be for my book?"
The simple answer is, It depends.
It's because the effort you put into your marketing and sales initiatives, especially for your first book, will set the stage for all of your other books. That's why I love Amy's gift to you with her courses. Amy shows you how to get your book out into the world, get it sold and get you writing and publishing even more books. For anyone who loves to write, this is good news indeed.
Here, Amy shares with you, first through a video tutorial and then with downloads you can use to hire, direct, and leverage your book selling efforts. This course made a big difference for my marketing efforts and I know it will for yours.
