Okay, so I am sure you have noticed my book The Student-Athlete Social Media Playbook. I have shared it here on the site as well as a couple of other spots. I wanted to share a little bit about my venture into the indie publishing world.
I first put the book up on Amazon in the Kindle Store exclusively. Doing so allowed me to enroll it in the Kindle Unlimited program. (unlimited ebook download and more CLICK to sign up -> Kindle Unlimited )
The cool thing here is that if you are a Kindle Unlimited member, you can borrow the book for FREE! And, I still get paid… how cool is that? The only caveat is that you have to read like 10% of the book in order for me to earn any $$.
The other thing I am able to do since I have a paid copy is to loan it to people. I will gladly lend it to you for FREE and all I ask is that you give me a review. That is the best way to get my book noticed.
As soon as the 90 day lock-in expires, I think I am going to add the book to the Apple iBooks store. I setup my account with them already and once my identify is verified, I will be able to post my works there.
If you have an interest in social media as it pertains to student-athletes, borrow it if you are on Kindle Unlimited, let me know and I will loan it to you – or heck , pick up a copy to keep!
I will keep you informed as to my sales and by the time my next book is ready, I should have the system all figured out. I’ll share that too!
