In today’s show, we interviewed Bev Flaxington, International Bestselling and Gold-award winning author of Understanding Other People. Bev shares her secrets of self publishing success. In her best month, she earned over $12,000 in royalties! Who said you can’t earn a great living as a self published author?

In the interview, Bev shares her strategies for success, including investing in creating a professional book with a high quality book cover, professional editing and graphics. Bev also blogs regularly to promote her work as an author and does as much PR as possible. She has now hired a PR firm to help with media exposure, using her book royalties to pay for the investment.

Bev actually received a $5,000 advance from a publisher for her very first book, something very rare for a first time author without a huge platform. But the royalties from the book could barely cover the advance! She found it was much more profitable to self publish rather than go with a traditional publisher.

Bev recommends using free publicity sources including HARO, ReporterConnection and PitchRate. Bev says chunk it down with your nonfiction books – less is more! Don’t overwhelm readers with too much content – just give them what they need and leave out the fluff.

Phenomenal interview! Thanks so much for sharing all of this info with
us. There’s nothing really left to do but to get it done. 

Admiral Bolitho says:

Tom, this series is so informative. I like hearing from other authors.
While there are similarities in advice there are also common themes–and in
those common themes I find the best information. Keep up the good work. 

Ty Hager says:

I found this quite insightful and useful Tom! Got this link from your Bible
lol. Which is highly motivational as well.

Tom Corson-Knowles says:

Awesome, Anna! Thank you for your kind words 🙂 Glad you loved the
interview and my books too!

Anna Fussell says:

Tom, I really enjoyed your interview with Bev. There were lots of tips that
I found really helpful. I liked her point about having several streams of
income so that you don’t put all that pressure on just your books to
generate income. Your books are phenomenonal. I am so envious of how simply
and straightforward you write. I got to this interview from your book The
Kindle Writing Bible. I’ve written for over 40 years, and I am learning
stuff from you.
